When I read this, I was rather surprised that Hardy took a somewhat more liberal view of the idea of a function than we commonly do today. He gives a number of further examples, some of which involve formulae, an equation or algebraic expression in x and y, including an infinite series. Others involve a relationship between x and y which follow from some geometrical construction. In this article, I’d like to give some examples of geometrical functions as illustrated by the software GeoGebra.
