This list of the earliest know use of maths terms is an amazing way to loose time finding old (but super interesting) papers to read thru! Stuff you may likely never come across otherwise!

For someone like myself who loves, but is less than proficient at, maths.... this is a treasure trove of older and more approachable technical papers! And if you are a maths wizard, well I'm sure you can appreciate it for the history and maybe add some obscure older papers to your offline archive! ;)
