ParametricPlot

ParametricPlot[{ ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}] produces a parametric plot with x and y coordinates  and  generated as a function of t.
ParametricPlot[{{ ,  }, { ,  }, ... }, {t, tmin, tmax}] plots several parametric curves.
ParametricPlot[{ ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}, "style"] generates a parametric plot of { ,  } in the designated style.
ParametricPlot[{ ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}, "style1", "style2"] generates a parametric plot of { ,  } in the primary style, "style1" and the secondary style, "style2".

• Primary plot styles for 2D plots include: Default, Technical, Minimal, Business, and Colorful.
• Secondary plot styles for 2D plots include: Frame, NoFrame, Grid, NoGrid, SmallPoints, LargePoints, Tall, Wide, ViewLeft, ViewRight, and ViewCenter.

ParametricPlot[{ ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}, {ymin, ymax}] generates a parametric plot of { ,  } over the specified y-axis range from ymin to ymax.
ParametricPlot[{ ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}, "style", {ymin, ymax}] combines both specifications for plot style and y-axis range.
