Canard: “a phenomenon in dynamical systems in which an
equilibrium state undergoes a type of singularity which gives rise to periodic
cycles that the French discoverers thought looked like ducks. Thanks goodness,
the term stuck. No sane people will ever try to match the French imagination by
suggesting otherwise.”
