Asymptote( <Conic> )
Yields both asymptotes of the conic.
Example: Asymptote(x^2 - y^2 /4 = 1) returns line -2x + y = 0 and line -2x - y = 0.
Asymptote( <Function> )
GeoGebra will attempt to find the asymptotes of the function and return them in a list. It may not find them all, for example vertical asymptotes of non-rational functions such as ln(x).
Example: Asymptote((x^3 - 2x^2 - x + 4) / (2x^2 - 2)) returns the list {y = 0.5x - 1, x = 1, x = -1}.
Asymptote( <Implicit Curve> )
Yields a list containing all the asymptotes of the Implicit Curve.
Example: Asymptote(x^3 + y^3 + y^2 - 3 x = 0) returns the list {x + y = -0.33}.
