Hello, and that's the problem with folks who rely solely on Wiki for
info. Someone invents a term that's not in common usage or in
peer-reviewed papers or textbooks, posts it on Wiki, and everyone thinks

just gotta get up off your butt and go to the public/university library
or dust off one of your college math textbooks (assuming you kept them).
