Re: implcit plot with undefined expression


You can use Solve to create explicit equations and Plot the results.

In[1]:=
eqn = Sqrt[2*Sqrt[2X^2 - Y^2] - 2*Y + X^2] == 0

Out[1]=
Sqrt[X^2 - 2*Y + 2*Sqrt[2*X^2 - Y^2]] == 0

In[2]:=
cont = Y /. Solve[eqn, Y]

Out[2]=
{1/4*(X^2 - Sqrt[16*X^2 - X^4]),
  1/4*(X^2 + Sqrt[16*X^2 - X^4])}

In[3]:=
Plot[Evaluate[cont], {X, -1, 1}]
