Hi :)
The only 1 i can confirm there is 1.  The rest all sound highly likely
and quite reasonable but i just don't remember anyone assigning
specific names to those sorts of things.  If we had those names would
have been good choices imo.

The only one i was unhappy with was 9.  It is the right pronunciation,
well perhaps more like "limb", but would have been written "lim"
without the "e".  However Olivier seems to have reached a higher level
than me.  My knowledge is only from university studies so it's
theoretical rather than "hands on" post-Uni.  Errr and it was ages ago
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi guys

I am stressing my decades-old synapses on engineering/calculus/maths and
I have some remarks on the nomenclature used in the Math functions or
notation module...

Please correct me if I am wrong, my background is pt+fr engineering, and

1) for integrals, change sup[sub]scrips for "lower[upper] limits"
2) An "integral" with no upper/lower limits is an "Undefined integral"
3) An "Integral with lower limit" is an "undefined integral with lower
4) same with upper limit
5) an "integral with lower and upper limits" is a "defined integral"
6) same for double and triple integrals

7) same for curve integrals

8) Sums, products and coproducts have "lower[upper] indexes"

9) limes ( a.k.a. limits) have lower/upper "variables"
