 changing terminology (was: overview paper co-author invitation) Kouznetsov Fellow Posts: 151 Threads: 9 Joined: Apr 2008 08/06/2009, 02:36 AM (08/05/2009, 06:15 PM)bo198214 Wrote: .. 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.How about arcsinh, arccosh,..? Now the prefix "arc" means "inverse function of". If I ask for "ArcGamma", everybody understands what do I mean, but if I say "inverse of Gamma", the GNU offers f(z)=1/Gamma(z) instead. I know that slog already appears in some texts as inverse of tetrational; sorry about that. But I do not extend this confusion to the new texts. I suggest the rule: if there is some holomorphic function Func, then the inverse is called ArcFunc, the superfunction of Func is called SuperFunc, and its inverse function is called ArcSuperFunc. For example, if a superfunction of tetrational, we already have names for it: pentational=pen=SuperTetrational and its inverse should be called arcpen=ArcSuperTetrational We need two prefices to indicate the inverse function and to indicate the superfincton. "arc" and "super" are best. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
