@christianp Does Fisher's work qualify (I suppose it would have to be fisherman's)?
But found this! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conformal_Killing_equation
@ruivieira I was looking for names that already have a mathematical meaning as adjectives
@christianp _Googles for someone named Pointless that worked on topology_
@christianp taking a broad interpretation of your question: I guess you could imagine a French mathematician naming something a "poisson doodad" which would of course be different from a "Poisson doodad" (distribution, equation etc)
Not exactly the same thing, but the name "Amenable group" is apparently a pun on the fact that you can put a mean on the group.
A famous mathematician whose name was also a common noun is Jacques Tits. He has many things named after him including the "Tits alternative", "Tits group", "Tits building".
@christianp A Killing field?
@christianp Oh and finally,
I guess a good place to find such names are at MGP. I found this person by an easy search:
His name is Russel Prime.
