It is  a parabola opening upward  [ "U" shaped, roughly ]

A little further clarification:;;     If 'a' is positive it shaped like a bowl....if 'a' is negative it is shaped like a dome.

Thanks, guest....!!!

You are correct....the width is determined by "a"....so  "U-shaped" might not be  exact

It is a parabola opening upward.......Manuel

"U -shaped" is probably good enough....
