I propose the 'limit' tag for, ahem, elimination. It's one of those common words that adds nothing as a tag.

This is for Stack Overflow, I presume? Because on Math.SE it's probably a useful tag. –  Aarobot Jan 23 '11 at 18:33
    
And integration, derivative, diferential-equation ... ? –  belisarius Jan 23 '11 at 19:25
    
yup. correct. so. –  Rosinante Jan 23 '11 at 19:25
    
the value on so is, however, epsilon. –  Rosinante Jan 23 '11 at 19:26
    
Numerical Methods are a core competence for programmers. Languages are just voluble tools. –  belisarius Jan 23 '11 at 19:35

looks like a legitimate tag to me. In Unix programming, “limit” is the proper technical term for a limitation set on the amount of resources a program can use (e.g. no more than x kB of memory or y seconds of CPU time). SQL is outside my area expertise, but the use of “limit” as a tag to discuss LIMIT clauses looks appropriate as well. So maybe some individual uses are ill-advised, but not the tag itself.
