I have seen this $u\left(x_{1}, x_{2}\right)=x_{1}+\alpha x_{2}+\beta \sqrt{x_{1} x_{2}}$ a numbers of time now. I wonder whether it is somehow special and therefore has it's own name?

Kind regards,

    $\begingroup$ "LaTeX doesn't format", what does that mean? Everything looks fine to me. $\endgroup$ – Xenusi May 8 '20 at 21:44

  • $\begingroup$ For $\alpha=\beta^2/4$ it is additively separable, but other than that I wouldn't know any special property or even name for it. $\endgroup$ – VARulle May 9 '20 at 12:43
