### System of two variables quadratic equations

Let $\mathcal{P}_{2,Z}$ be the set of all 2 variables quadratic equations $P(x,y)$ with integral coefficients: $$P(x,y)=a_1x^2+a_2y^2+a_3xy+a_4x+a_5y+a_6\ \ \ \ \ \ (a_i\in \mathbb{Z})$$
Consider a ...

### solving in x involving both exponential and logarithmic function

Is it possible to solve a function with both exponential and logarithm such as
$a x^2 - b.\log(x) = c $
in closed form; where $a,b,c$ are constants and $a>0$ and $b>0$?
