I don't know about corners, but in mathematical copy, referring to
the right-HAND (or left-hand) side of an equation is standard, to the
point that the abbreviations RHS (and LHS) are widely understood (or
so I was told the first time I queried them).
Presumably this is to make it clear that one is referring to "right"
as in position rather than "right" as in correct -- not that I'd
know whether or not most of the equations I've looked at were
correct or not!

Marietta Energy Systems, Inc., which is under contract to the
U.S. Department of Energy, but I don't speak for any of them,
and they return the favor.
