Madhusudan, I'm certain there is a way to obtain a nice plot for your function, but since you do not supply a COMPLETE example nor a valid email address you severely limit your chances for a response. David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: Madhusudan Singh [mailto:spammers-go-here at yahoo.com] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net I wish to do plot a vector field plot of an implicit solution. Equations : (*V[x] is a polynomial function defined earlier *) e[x_, v_] := 1/2 v^2 + V[x]; t3 = Table[e[x, v] == e1, {e1, 0, 1, 0.2}]; ImplicitPlot[Evaluate[t3], {x, \(-2\), 2}]; This plots a nice implicit plot for various values of e1. What I wish to do is to attach a "sense" to the contours (an arrow that describes the direction of the orbit). However, I am at a loss as to how to do it with PlotVectorField. Any help would be appreciated. PS : Is there a way in which I can "automate" the labelling of the curves with the values of e1 they are plotted for (something better than manually editing the labels to the plot each time I change the range of e1) ? -- Linux 3:29pm up 2:28, 1 user, load average: 0.07, 0.20, 0.16
