Few students can escape intermediate microeconomics (or beyond) without learning about "isoquants": the set of combinations of factor inputs that generate the same level (quantity) of output for a given production function.In days when some scholars used to show off what Greek they know, or had found in a dictionary, almost every kind of line showing constant values was given a distinct name: some have flourished in limited fields, e.g. isotherm (temperature), isohyet (rainfall), isobath (depth). Some failed to get off the ground, e.g. isonoet (lines of equal IQ), found I believe only in one study of IQ patterns in Tasmania.
