 for fixed point
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  fixed point
  fixpoint
  
      The fixed point of a function, f is any value, x
     for which f x = x.  A function may have any number of fixed
     points from none (e.g. f x = x+1) to infinitely many (e.g. f x
     = x).  The fixed point combinator, written as either "fix"
     or "Y" will return the fixed point of a function.
  
     See also least fixed point.
