a type of a generating set of an ideal in a polynomial ring over a field. It is a multivariate non linear generalization of Gaussian elimination and Euclid's algorithm.

graphs obtained from a group $G$ in a such way that vertices are elements of the group and edges are added using some generating set $S\subseteq G$.

For questions pertaining to power towers: expressions like a^(b^(c^d))), which result from iterated exponentiation. The "hyperoperation" tag may be appropriate, too.

Questions on quadratic variations of stochastic processes. (Not to be confused with functions of bounded variation.)

For questions on determining whether a number is rational, and related problems. If applicable, use this tag instead of (rational-numbers) and (irrational-numbers). Consider adding a tag (radicals) or…

an arrangement of $n^2$ numbers, usually distinct integers, in a square, such that the n numbers in all rows, all columns, and both diagonals sum to the same constant. ht…

a particular form of optimization modeling that tends to be well-suited for combinatorial models like scheduling and planning.

a form of many-valued logic that deals with approximate, rather than fixed and exact reasoning. (Def: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuzzy_logic)

The greatest common divisor of two or more integers is the largest integer that divides all of them (if it exists).

Questions related to mathematical chemistry which include application of mathematics to problems in chemistry and the development of mathematical methods suitable for such applications and for the for…

For questions about various search algorithms.

The difference of two prime consecutive prime numbers is the prime gap. $g_i := p_{i+1} - p_i$.

an oriented graph which might contain multiple edges and loops. The terminology is used in representation-theory of finite dimensional algebras, where one considers functors from this grap…

Questions about or involving perfect numbers which are positive integers that are equal to the sum of their proper positive divisors.

Computation of Cauchy principal values of integrals. May be tied in with contour integration, but should be separate from definite-integrals.

For questions about Goldbach's conjecture: every even integer greater than two is the sum of two primes.

If the expression obtained after any substitution during limit analysis does not give enough information to determine the original limit, it is known as an indeterminate form.
