# How to visualize implicit functions

I have a task of visualizing few implicit functions. Firstly lets say I have the following function of $N$:

$$\epsilon = \sqrt{\frac{8}{N}\ln \left( \frac{4(2N)^{50}}{0.05} \right)}$$

Now this is very easy to visualize, just insert some values of $N$ from some range to get corresponding $\epsilon$. But what about in this case:

$$\epsilon = \sqrt{\frac{1}{2N}\left( 4\epsilon(1+\epsilon ) + \ln\left(\frac{4(N^2)^{50}}{0.05}\right) \right)}$$

How do I visualize this function? Do I simply need to firstly, pick some value for $N$ and then see which value of $\epsilon$ satisfies the equality? And then I repeat this process for some range of $N$ values?

Thank you for any help =)

Your equation is of the form $$\epsilon = \sqrt{a\epsilon^2+b\epsilon+c}$$ where $a,b$ and $c$ are functions of $N$. Also, we have that $\epsilon>0$.
Squaring, you get $$\epsilon^2 = a\epsilon^2+b\epsilon+c$$ so we have $$\epsilon^2(a-1)+b\epsilon+c=0$$ Solving with respect to $\epsilon$ leads to $$\epsilon=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4(a-1)c}}{2(a-1)}$$ These are two functions of $N$. You can see the relation between $\epsilon$ and $N$ as the union of the two graphs. In your particular case, $$a=2/N\\ b=2/N\\ c=\frac{1}{2N}\ln\left(\frac{4N}{0.05}^{\!100}\right)$$ so your two functions are $$\epsilon(N)=\frac{-\frac{2}{N}\pm\sqrt{\frac{4}{N^2}-4(\frac{2}{N}-1)\frac{1}{2N}\ln\left(\frac{4N}{0.05}^{\!100}\right)}}{2(\frac{2}{N}-1)}$$ which simplifies to $$\epsilon(N)=\frac{-1\pm\sqrt{1-\frac{N-2}{2}\ln\left(\frac{4N}{0.05}^{\!100}\right)}}{2-N}$$ You can plot these two functions together in the same graph.
