My undergraduate degree was in Mathematics (University of Dallas, 1971). My core interest is General Systems Theory. My career was mostly in computer programming, however, I also taught English, and high-school mathematics, in China for 9 years. I am currently semi-retired, drawing social security, and working on my various websites. As far as I am concerned, anything I do here is in the Public Domain.

So, I'll go ahead and enter it as a new word in the ESL dictionary that I'm compiling. You can view the dictionary here: prof-vortaro-de-la-merk-angla.weebly.com

@Bradd Szonye: all-upper case has the advantage of being more widely useable, as in filenames.

I got taken to task by Zev Chonoles for making similar speculation about the value of e, here: math.stackexchange.com/questions/26037/…

comment How to teach mathematical induction?
Good point about "the wave" - and it reminds me of the phenomenon of the sudden freezing over of a super-cooled lake when a pebble is thrown into it.
