All right ... Now that I read the other responses, I understand what the
question was.  But it still wouldn't hurt if you tried to formulate the
problem precisely.  Maybe it would even lead you to the solution ...

I searched Google, Mathworld and Wikipedia for "Calander" and "Calander
base", but all I could find is that "calander" is either a misspelling 
of "calender", which is a machine used in making paper, or an obsolete 
variation on the spelling of the name of a species of lark.

So I still have no clue about where you got this term from.  I would be 
glad if someone could enlighten me.
