Stack: a System for Teaching and Assessment using a Computer algebra Kernel. This project provides tools for integrating computer algebra functions into learning and teaching systems.
In algebraic geometry, a branch of mathematics, an algebraic stack is a concept introduced to generalize algebraic varieties, schemes, and algebraic spaces. They were originally proposed in a paper of Deligne and Mumford on the compactifications of moduli of curves; such stacks are now called Deligne-Mumford stacks. They were later generalized by Michael Artin to what is now called an Artin stack, or sometimes, confusingly, an algebraic stack.

In Pennsylvania automobile insurance law, purchasers of insurance have the option to "stack" uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. If you choose "stacking," this means that you can add the coverage together for each vehicle you have insured, at least under the policy.

For example, if you have two vehicles, with $100,000/$300,000 (meaning $100,000 available per person, and $300,000 available per accident) in uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, you can "stack" the coverages and have available $200,000/$600,000 in coverage.
