You will have to give a clearer specification as to the polar curve you want
to draw. Usually you have to give a function of the angle theta that
represents the radius at that angle and then an iterator giving the domain
of theta. See the examples in PolarPlot.

If you are going to use an implicit equation then it has to be clearer. The
expressions you give are not an equation.

Dear All,

 Kindly guide me regarding how to have polar plot in mathematica.

 I have gone through function PolarPlot in virtual book but unable to get my
syntax correctly for the following eqn:


                     r^.=r(1-r^2)

                    \[Theta]^.=1


Please guide.


Regards,

Rahul
