### What kind is this optimization problem

I come across a problem like
$\max {\frac{1+v}{1-u}}$
$s.t.~$ $ux^2+vy^2-xy\ge0$ $\forall x,y\in\mathbb{R}$
I do not know much of optimization.
What I have done is that $ux^2+vy^2\ge ...

### Does Quadratic Programming get easier when it's described by a diagonal matrix?

Generally, Quadratic Programming solves the problem
$$\text{Given }Q, c, A, b,\text{ choose }x \text{ to maximize } x^TQx + c^Tx \text{ subject to } Ax \le b$$
In this form, Quadratic Programming is ...
