Dear all,

Suppose that {X, Y, Z} = {f[u,v], g[u,v], h[u, v]} and that we want to 
eliminate u, v and get an equation in X, Y, Z.

Then we can try

Eliminate[{X-f[u,v], Y-g[u,v], Z-h[u,v]},{u, v}]

This time f, g, w contain square roots and I think that this is the 
reason by which Eliminate seems don't work (after 15 minutes I aborted 
the calculation)

Is there any enhancement or substitute for Eliminate in this case?

Thank you
