Something to do with Graphs (the ones with nodes and paths, not the ones with x and y axes). Sorry I don't know any more than that.

Can you explain the context? For example, paths are both involved in graph theory and calculus, as well as a few other fields of math. They all mean different things however, so we need some more background as to what you're doing.
