I'd like to resurrect the discussion of this interesting function.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here are a few captivating pictures:

First is a graph of x^y=y^x :

Second one was achieved in MatLab 6.5:

EDU>> ezplot('x^y-y^x',[-150,-148])

I rotated the picture 90 degrees

Now this one seemed a bit odd to me.. any thoughts?

Edit:

Ok I'm freaking out here.. is my MatLab out of whack??
