A number of recent papers have been concerned with algorithms to decide the limiting behaviour of functions of a single variable. Here we make a corresponding study of a class of functions of two variables, namely the exp-log functions. As in the one-variable case, we need to make certain assumptions regarding the handling of constants. Two of the main tools in the one-variable case are Hardy fields and nested forms. Here, we show how to compute some asymptotic estimates for two-variable exp-log functions. This method is then used to give an algorithm for computing the nested forms of real implicit functions.
