    Converting implicit function to explicit

    I have an implicit function [e.g. x+\frac{ln(y)}{y^2}=0)]. Is there any mathematical trick/technique that can convert this to an explicit function (i.e. y=f(x)) even within certain restrictions and conditions.

    No you cannot get y on its own when there is a mix of algebraic (squared) and exponential (log) terms. Except maybe in special circumstances.
