what is the equation to get this type of a curve?

what must be the equation to get this type of a curve??

the curve must increase from -infinity to 0 and then decrease again to +infinity.

Thank you

Such a curve is not algebraic: those are by definition given by polynomials and intersect each line (or other curve) in finitely many other points by Bézout.. That is clearly not the case in your picture.. – Joachim Aug 18 '12 at 6:45

You can try multiplying a $\sin$ wave with a Gaussian, e.g: $$\sin(5x)e^{-x^2/2}$$

y=sin(x)/x has this property.
sin(x)/x function has a special name: sinc(x)
It is an important function. For example it is the Fourier transform of the rectangular pulse which plays a major role in signals and systems analysis.

The sine cardinal is an even function, while the OP's function does not at all look even... – J. M. Aug 18 '12 at 6:50
@J.M. I don't think the OP wants the function to be even. I mean if he wanted the function in the figure then how did he plot it? – Zeta.Investigator Aug 18 '12 at 6:54
Still, the graph of the function you propose looks nothing like the OP's picture... – J. M. Aug 18 '12 at 6:56
