1560s, from Middle French cone (16c.) or directly from Latin conus "a cone, peak of a helmet," from Greek konos "cone, spinning top, pine cone," perhaps from PIE root *ko "to sharpen" (cognates: Sanskrit sanah "whetstone," Latin catus "sharp," Old English han "stone").

Wikipedia
A cone is a basic geometrical shape.
Cone may also refer to:
In topology, especially algebraic topology, the cone CX of a topological space X is the quotient space:
CX = (X × I)/(X × {0})
of the product of X with the unit interval I = [0, 1]. Intuitively we make X into a cylinder and collapse one end of the cylinder to a point.
If X sits inside Euclidean space, the cone on X is homeomorphic to the union of lines from X to another point. That is, the topological cone agrees with the geometric cone when defined. However, the topological cone construction is more general.
A cone is a threedimensional geometric shape that tapers smoothly from a flat base (frequently, though not necessarily, circular) to a point called the apex or vertex.
A cone is formed by a set of line segments, halflines, or lines connecting a common point, the apex, to all of the points on a base that is in a plane that does not contain the apex. Depending on the author, the base may be restricted to be a circle, any onedimensional quadratic form in the plane, any closed onedimensional figure, or any of the above plus all the enclosed points. If the enclosed points are included in the base, the cone is a solid object; otherwise it is a twodimensional object in threedimensional space. In the case of a solid object, the boundary formed by these lines or partial lines is called the lateral surface; if the lateral surface is unbounded, it is a conical surface.
In the case of line segments, the cone does not extend beyond the base, while in the case of halflines, it extends infinitely far. In the case of lines, the cone extends infinitely far in both directions from the apex, in which case it is sometimes called a double cone. Either half of a double cone on one side of the apex is called a nappe.
The axis of a cone is the straight line (if any), passing through the apex, about which the base (and the whole cone) has a circular symmetry.
In common usage in elementary geometry, cones are assumed to be right circular, where circular means that the base is a circle and right means that the axis passes through the centre of the base at right angles to its plane. If the base is right circular the intersection of a plane with this surface is a conic section. In general, however, the base may be any shape and the apex may lie anywhere (though it is usually assumed that the base is bounded and therefore has finite area, and that the apex lies outside the plane of the base). Contrasted with right cones are oblique cones, in which the axis passes through the centre of the base nonperpendicularly.
A cone with a polygonal base is called a pyramid.
Depending on the context, "cone" may also mean specifically a convex cone or a projective cone.
Cones can also be generalized to higher dimensions.
In category theory, a branch of mathematics, the cone of a functor is an abstract notion used to define the limit of that functor. Cones make other appearances in category theory as well.
Cone is a textbased email client and news client for Unixlike operating systems. It is developed by the Courier Mail Server developers. Its name stands for "console newsreader and emailer".

In algebraic geometry, a cone is a generalization of a vector bundle. Specifically, given a scheme X, the relative Spec
C = SpecR
of a quasicoherent graded Oalgebra R is called the cone or affine cone of R. Similarly, the relative Proj
P(C) = ProjR
is called the projective cone of C or R.
Note: The cone comes with the Gaction due to the grading of R; this action is a part of the data of a cone (whence the terminology).
In formal language theory, a cone is a set of formal languages that has some desirable closure properties enjoyed by some wellknown sets of languages, in particular by the families of regular languages, contextfree languages and the recursively enumerable languages. The concept of a cone is a more abstract notion that subsumes all of these families. A similar notion is the faithful cone, having somewhat relaxed conditions. For example, the contextsensitive languages do not form a cone, but still have the required properties to form a faithful cone.
The terminology cone has a French origin. In the American oriented literature one usually speaks of a full trio. The trio corresponds to the faithful cone.
