# Analyzing Shifts in $$A$$ and $$\alpha$$¶

## Shifts in $$A$$ and their Effect on Output¶

First, let us plot a 3D surface of the Cobb-Douglas production function. Output, $$Y$$, will go on the vertical (or $$z$$) axis. Capital and labor will go on the $$y$$ and $$x$$ axes, resp. The plot below plots the Cobb-Douglas function with $$A=2$$, also showing $$A=1$$ for reference.
