Consider a (real) function of two independent variables $z = \map f {x, y}$.

Let a relation between $x$ and $y$ be expressed in the form $\map f {x, y} = 0$ defined on some interval $\mathbb I$.


If there exists a function:

$y = \map g x$

defined on $\mathbb I$ such that:

$\forall x \in \mathbb I: \map f {x, \map g x} = 0$

then the relation $\map f {x, y} = 0$ defines $y$ as an implicit function of $x$.
