Center : This term has multiple connotations. It is often used to indicate the site of a particular function, or as a rough synonym for node. It was used essentially in the latter sense as far back as Manfridi (1490; see Singer 1917, p. 108) and Bartholin (1662, p. 142). Of course center can also refer to the middle point of an object.
