"a pole of a meromorphic function is a certain type of singularity that behaves like the singularity"
...Behaves like WHAT singularity?

Separate rfc-sense tag (separate from page rfc tag) on complex analysis definition has been cleaned up, please verify the new definition. 184.108.40.206 18:15, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
(As far as the page rfc goes, it looks a lot different from a year ago, it probably just needs a good review at this point.) 220.127.116.11 18:15, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
- I made a few further formatting adjustments. It looks OK to me. DCDuring TALK 04:41, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
- @DCDuring I've merged the mathematics (complex analysis) definitions in etyms 1 & 2, which were equivalent apart from domain specificity. I have preferred etym 2 on the basis of a probable connection to the geometry and physics senses already there. For reference, some possible other senses / derived terms are mentioned in Pole at Wolfram.com and Pole on Wikipedia.Wikipedia — Pingkudimmi 12:34, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
- Great. If further cleanup is needed, it would be good to open a fresh request. - -sche (discuss) 18:48, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
Are "quadrupole" to "hexadecapole" and "multipole" worth adding to the derived terms section? Theoretically they could go arbitrarily far so it has to stop somewhere, but pages only exist up to "hexadecapole", and they're increasingly rare. 18.104.22.168 14:13, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
