OT: Math symbols conventions

        Hi all,

        Anyone knows where I can find about math conventions? I'm specially
interested in the trigonometrical symbols (like cos, sin, ...).
        I'm asking because most programs I've been using will print 'sin'
for Sine. But we use 'sen' or 'Sen' for that (from Seno) in Portuguese.
I was wondering whether there's some international convention defining
if it's 'sin', or 'sen', or whatever.
        I've also seen variants for Tangent: tan, tg, Tg
