ParametricPlot

ParametricPlot[{fx,fy},{u,umin,umax}]

generates a parametric plot of a curve with x and y coordinates fx and fy as a function of u.

ParametricPlot[{{fx,fy},{gx,gy},},{u,umin,umax}]

plots several parametric curves.

ParametricPlot[{fx,fy},{u,umin,umax},{v,vmin,vmax}]

plots a parametric region.

ParametricPlot[{{fx,fy},{gx,gy},},{u,umin,umax},{v,vmin,vmax}]

plots several parametric regions.

ParametricPlot[,{u,v}reg]

takes parameters {u,v} to be in the geometric region reg.
