"treasury bill" is not just noise, it seems to be a defined term in the
(US) financial world, one can buy a treasury bill. We have the functions
TBILLEQ, TBILLPRICE and TBILLYIELD (that lack mathematical formulas as
well). I assume TBILL stands for treasury bill, EQ in TBILLEQ probably
stands for equivalent. Whatever a "bond-equivalent yield for a treasury
bill" may be...

If this can't be clarified I'll just add the formula for TBILLEQ and
leave the description as is.
