tood, is true, mainly Aleix and I identified that problem, unfortunally
this year I hadn't enough time to help on concretize it.

Indeed, I'm happy to see that the KAlgebra's math parser (Analitza) is
already on his own module, so we can think on a similar/better approach to
solve the issue.

Ankit, yes indeed, KAlgebra has a lot of potencial; actually, I have a
couples of ideas may interest you.

- Implicit curves with polar coordinates
f(theta, radius)=k => is any element of a level set
Very interesting from the algorithms side;
also, you definitly will touch some parts of KAlgebra and will use the
parser.

- Draw -correctly- the slope of these (already implemented) curves: polar,
and parametric. There is a method right now but is not so robust ...

Ankit, whether or not you end up with KAlgebra, have a fun with KDE-Edu, is
tecnology :)

Best regards,
Percy (aucahuasi)
