This means that, if both inputs change at a rate g, the resulting output will change at that rate too: (gK)~ (gL)l-~ Q(gK,gL) Furthermore (49) gQ(K,L) the exponent of each input variable can be interpreted as the partial elasticity of output with respect to that input. For example, the partial elasticity of output with respect to capital goods is: £~ As dQ Q = dK K ~g K g (50) ~ K far as the return function R(Q) is concerned, they introduce the usual assumptions of strict concavity, twice creasing function they assume that the function Q Together with differentiability, a strict in- with decreasing marginal returns to scale.
