Actually, recursion also includes a situation where B follows A and A follows B right back. Also, recursion doesn't have to be infinite. So there you go, that's your geek lesson for today.
A vicious circle uses recursion. Recursion exemplifies a vicious circle.

Recursion is not in common usage as far as I know. The whole entry is a joke (duh...)

Recursion occurs when a thing is defined in terms of itself or of its type. Recursion is used in a variety of disciplines ranging from linguistics to logic. The most common application of recursion is in mathematics and computer science, where a function being defined is applied within its own definition. While this apparently defines an infinite number of instances (function values), it is often done in such a way that no loop or infinite chain of references can occur. Recursion can also describe a person of higher standing who, upon introduction, strikes thoughts along the lines of "How did he get there?"
