The word that German mathematicians use to mean "set".

Since much of set theory (Mengenlehre) was developed by German mathematicians, most importantly Georg Cantor, you will see the variable M appear in many important proofs of set theory.

Menge (?), v. i. [imp. Mente, Meinte; p. p. Ment, Meint.] [See Mingle.]

To mix.
