Level set vs level curve

    Whats the difference between a level set and a level curve, with regards to multi-variable calculus?

    They are very similar concepts but a level set is merely a set of points ##\mathbf{x}## such that ##f(\mathbf{x}) = c##, and a level curve is a special case when those points take the form of a curve.

    Calpalned, you asked this same question under "Calculus and Beyond Homework". Please do not post the same question more than once. That can get you suspended.
