You are the nerdiest people I know. I'm reaching out for help in my darkest hour.

I'm part of a math modeling competition team that needs a punny math name. Past examples include "Team Pi-thons" and "Team Super-Models". Something to do with The Matrix would be amazing but really anything math-related goes. I haven't come up with anything good so far, maybe you guys will :-)

Give it your worst. Many thanks!!

Once you know of Knot Theory the puns become endless. I kid you knot.

Dress colorfully and arrange your team symmetrically by color and call yourselves The Grey Abelians (pun on "grey aliens").

Go for mysterious: The Degenerates (my absolute favorite topic to really screw with the kids' minds when I taught Geometry)

Often taken: Pi-rates/Pi-rats of the ________

Extremely nerdy math joke (and my favorite): ∀∀ ∃∃ ("For all upside-down A, there exists a backwards E")

Integral of ex (it may be a bit too dirty to explain on this forum)

Team LaTeX-free

LaPlace Transformers

Right Hand Rulers

Tau of (your home city) or Tau-tologists

Prime cuts, USDA Primes, Prime-mates

(Hot) Chicken Proth

Sir Pinsky, Sir Cumference

Al Got Rhythm, Al Jabberwocky, Algae-Bras/Alge-Bras or Algae-Bros/Alge-Bros if you're all of one gender.

Cow Pis (I have this on a tshirt, it's a giant holstein cow patterned π with udders in the middle)

Team Doughnut, but every time it's announced correct them and say you're the coffee mugs, then apologize for an easy confusion. Swap as needed during the competition.

In lieu of AC/DC, perhaps AB*CD?
