You can use function notation as an easy, efficient way of using equations without re-writing them. For example, you can evaluate a function at a certain point:

You can use the notation f(x,y), for example, to define a function with more than one variable:

Defining a function once allows you to use this function within other functions. 

Or, you can combine multiple functions together to create a separate function.

    Functions should be able to accept points as arguments. It would be very helpful.

    Are there any plans to eventually implement recursive functions?

    Your f(x,y) never uses the y is essentially a one-variable function.  I was looking for how to graph f(x,y)=x+y+xy?

    Is there a way to have a function return a function?

    Very quick. Can we define function names with more than one letters like :

    TempEngine (t) = ....

    Derivative (t) = 

    Numerator (x) =....

    Denom(x) = ....

    Ratio(x) = Numerator(x)/Denom(x)

    The help file should at least explain what is possible and what is not.We (the users) would save lot of time. Best regards, Philippe
