### hypothesis

> In mathematics, the term "hypothesis" is not used as often as in the sciences.

Then why are there 104 references to this entry?

Perhaps it would be more appropriate to give the definition of "hypothesis" that is often used in mathematics (i.e., a synonym is "assumption"). Or maybe this other definition of "hypothesis" should be a separate entry.
