Harmonic curve

  1. Jul 15, 2006 #1
    I am trying to recall the formula that I call the harmonic curve, that gives the curve that begins at 1 on an x and y axis where x & y equal 1 and then for every posting therafter:rolleyes: , the curve approaches each axis but never reaches the axis. Anyone know the forumula that will produce this result:rolleyes:

    Are you thinking of y=1/x?

    y = 1/x maybe?

    I think he must be, seeing as there is the "harmonic series" of 1/n.
