Thank you for not simply saying Erdős and leaving us searching for a Hungarian mathematical term starting with "ős."

Tytus Babczyński

Another mathematician, though I found it very dificult to find a "real" term that starts with "ty."

"Ki" will (hopefully) give us more math-y terms.

Edit: Oh, come on guys. You were supposed to do "kite" then "tessellate" then "tessellate" then "tessellate" then "tessellate" then "tessellate" then...

kilo.

And I can't believe my stupidity on my last post. Obviously altitude is a math term. I may have been thinking aviation...? Anyways, yeah, wow brain.

(Type I/II Region from Calculus might've worked?)

Re: kilo, I propose "locus."

I almost got into something that starts with those last two letters.

In an unorthodox manner of speaking.

"Orthodox" not okay ==> Orthonormal basis ;)
"Orthodox" okay ==> Oxford Mathematics Department :twisted:

I love bifurcation.
