Re: How to set y always greater than or equal to x for a function?

Helo!

The y domain specification in Plot3D cannot depended on x,
otherwise you could do something like {x,-100,100},{y,x,100},
but you can always IF your function, e.g.

myFunction[x_,y_]:=If[x>y,0,Sqrt[y-x]]

Plot3D[myFunction[x,y],{x,-100,100},{y,-100,100}]


Good bye,
