    u^4 + u^2 x v^2 + v^4

    = u^4 + 2(u^2) (v^2) + v^4 - (u^2)(v^2)

    = (u^2 + v^2)^2 - (uv)^2

    = (u^2 + v^2 + uv)(u^2 + v^2 - uv)

    u^4 + u^2 x v^2 + v^4

    = u^4 + (u^2) (v^2) + v^4 + (u^2)(v^2) - (u^2)(v^2)

    = u^4 + (u^2)(v^2) + (u^2)(v^2) + v^4 - (u^2)(v^2)

    = u^4 + 2(u^2) (v^2) + v^4 - (u^2)(v^2)

    that means + (u^2)(v^2) first and - (u^2)(v^2) the value have no change.
