comment How are the higher derivatives (jerk, jounce) of position with respect to time used in physics?
Hmmm, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerk_(physics)#Applications ? But "[h]igher-order derivatives of position are not commonly useful. Thus, there has been no consensus among physicists on the proper names for derivatives above pop." (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pop_(motion))

@EmilioPisanty Sure. Quick answer. Citations. If I Google "An Ontology for Engineering Mathematics" it shows up as hit #1 with 446 citations (meaning references to this particular paper).
