# Is there a standard term for the elasticity of an isoquant?

Isoquants - the level sets of a production function $$f$$ - are very useful in microeconomics. For example, if we hold all but two inputs fixed, then the isoquant is a plane curve that quantifies the substitutability of those two inputs. Is there a standard term for the elasticity $$E$$ of an isoquant? This seems like a natural quantity to consider, since it tells you that a reduction of input 1 by a small percentage can be made up for by an increase of input 2 by $$E$$ times that percentage in order to hold output constant.

I know about two closely related concepts, but neither of them seem to be quite this:

1. The marginal rate of technical substitution (MRTS) gives the (negative) slope (i.e. derivative) of the isoquant, but not its elasticity.
2. The elasticity of substitution is similar, but (I believe) more complicated. As I understand it, it's the elasticity of the ratio of the ratio of inputs to the MRTS. This notion seems way more complicated than just the elasticity of the isoquant, which seems much more intuitive to me.

Note that the elasticity of an isoquant of two inputs $$x$$ and $$y$$ equals $$\frac{\partial y}{\partial x} \frac{x}{y} = -\mathrm{MRTS} \frac{x}{y} = -\frac{\frac{\partial f}{\partial x}}{\frac{\partial f}{\partial y}} \frac{x}{y} = -\frac{\frac{\partial f}{\partial x}}{\frac{\partial f}{\partial y}} \frac{\frac{x}{f}}{\frac{y}{f}},$$ which is the (negative) ratio of the partial output elasticities with respect to the two inputs. So maybe there's no special term for this isoquant elasticity, since it's simply a ratio of two other standard quantities.
