changing terminology (was: overview paper co-author invitation)
#8
Jay, I ask you to be more constructive.
The problems are explained, if you have solutions we are keen to hear.
But, I dont want to have polemics on the board.

Yes, indeed I think the "arc" prefix for trigonometric functions comes from measuring the length of the arc on the unit circle (which is the angle).
So etymologically this would count against a usage as "inverse"-prefix.
