Curve and its types

C Graphics » Curve and its types

Curve

A curve is a collection of indefinite points where each and every point has two neighbors, except start and endpoints (as they have one). There are three types of curves:

Implicit Curve

It can be expressed as the collection of points which are defined by an implicit equation to check whether a point on the curve or not.
The given function is referred to as implicit function
f(x,y)=0
In this, this function would give multiple values of x for a single value of y. It is also known as multivalued function

Implicit : When a soloution can not be expressed  for x in form of y 

Explicit Curve

It can be expressed as the collection of points which are plotted on using a function y = f(x).

y=f(x)

In this, the given function would give a single value of x for a single value of y. It is also known as a Single valued function

Parametric Curve

If a curve whose points are plotted using a parametric function is known as the parametric curve.

f = g1(t), g2(t),  it can be represented as (x,y)

where the value of t is in between 0 and 1
t =[0,1]
