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 A201280, take f(x,u,v) = u*x^2 - v - cot(x) 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.
