You're right, my bad; I meant around parts of formulas, calculations,
expressions or whatever you want to call them, depending on context.

"Sometimes differing"?!  Is this the new mathematics?  ;^) lists a couple of

noting that those corners could be very sharp indeed.

Chacun à son goût, of course.
