Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

If u>0 and v>0, there is a unique number x satisfying e^(ux)-e^(-vx)=1.  Guide to related sequences, with graphs included in Mathematica programs:

u.... v.... x

1.... 1.... A002390

1.... 2.... A202537

1.... 3.... A202538

2.... 1.... A202539

3.... 1.... A202540

2.... 2.... A202541

3.... 3.... A202542

1/2..1/2... A202543

Suppose that f(x,u,v) is a function of three real variables and that g(u,v) is a function defined implicitly by f(g(u,v),u,v)=0.  We call the graph of z=g(u,v) an implicit surface of f.  For an example related to A202537, take f(x,u,v)=e^(ux)-e^(-vx)-1 and g(u,v) = a nonzero solution x of f(x,u,v)=0.  If there is more than one nonzero solution, care must be taken to ensure that the resulting function g(u,v) is single-valued and continuous.  A portion of an implicit surface is plotted by Program 2 in the Mathematica section.
