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 , the curve approaches each axis but never reaches the axis. Anyone know the forumula that will produce this result

Are you thinking of y=1/x?

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