<*mathematics*> One member of a tuple of numbers which defines
the position of a point in some space. Commonly used
coordinate systems have as many coordinates as their are
dimensions in the space, e.g. a pair for two dimensions. The
most common coordinate system is Cartesian coordinates,
probably followed by polar coordinates.
