Converting implicit function to explicit

  1. May 22, 2013 #1
    I have an implicit function [e.g. [itex]x+\frac{ln(y)}{y^2}=0[/itex])]. Is there any mathematical trick/technique that can convert this to an explicit function (i.e. [itex]y=f(x)[/itex]) even within certain restrictions and conditions.

    I don't believe so. It would be simple to write as x = g(y), though. What's wrong with that?
