## Elementary FunctionsSome of the simplest curves are the graphs of elementary functions. Examples include trigonometric functions, exponentials, logarithms, polynomials, and lines. ## Conic SectionsSome common curves can be formed simply by slicing a
cone with a plane. These so-called ## Famous CurvesThese curves have been studied by famous mathematicians for their interesting properties and appearances. Many are named for the mathematicians that studied them. See the complete index for examples. |
