The tag is currently used to mark questions (currently ~120) about rather different topics:

  • The period of a periodic waveform or function.
  • A generic period of time in various contexts.
  • The period symbol, i.e. dot or full-stop ., in different contexts.

Therefore it doesn't seem much helpful and maybe should be burninated.

Your first category - periodic waves / functions - is a cohesive topic. Possibly better to retag those as "periodic" for instance.

The usual practice when a tag is ambiguous I understand is to burninate. That being said, I'm not sure it's not a better idea to just edit the description to make it solely for periodic functions since I don't think the other categories really have cohesion of any kind.

Burn it. It's imprecise for the most appropriate usage. Periodic would be more apropos.
