Given functions F=F(x,y;a,b) and G=G(x,y;a,b), where x and y are
coordinates and a and b are parameters. So,


defines two 3D surfaces:


Suppose the functions F and G are implicit and transcendental, so they
are cumbersome to be solved directly to give x=x(a,b) and y=y(a,b). My
question is whether it is possible to draw these two surfaces from
relations F=0 and G=0.

I appreciate with your help!
