 for Complex of lines
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Complex \Com"plex\, n. [L. complexus]
     Assemblage of related things; collection; complication.
     [1913 Webster]
  
           This parable of the wedding supper comprehends in it
           the whole complex of all the blessings and privileges
           exhibited by the gospel.                 --South.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Complex of lines (Geom.), all the possible straight lines
        in space being considered, the entire system of lines
        which satisfy a single relation constitute a complex; as,
        all the lines which meet a given curve make up a complex.
        The lines which satisfy two relations constitute a
        congruency of lines; as, the entire system of lines, each
        one of which meets two given surfaces, is a congruency.
        [1913 Webster]
