Definition: date math

Calculations made upon dates. For example, March 30 + 5 yields April 4. Date math was the crux of the Y2K problem. In Y2K compliant systems, calculating dates with the full four-digit year yielded the correct results. In non-compliant systems, the year 2000 was interpreted as 1900. See Y2K problem.
