I'm after a little clarification/support on a definition. The concern stems
from certain sources using the terminlogy 'stationary point' and 'Turning
point' as having the same meaning.
My stance is that Stationary points can be Max, Min or Inflexion, whereas
Turning points can only be used for Max or Min points.
Your views will be welcomed
