Wolf is a mythical representative of the Serbian people.
In the Serbian epic poetry, the wolf is a symbol of fearlessness.
The Serbian proverb "The wolf changes his hair, but never his mind" in fact talks about the adaptability to difficult conditions and the external environment on the one hand, but also on the immutability of its original - moral character on the other.

Vuk (pronounced "Vook"), is a verb named after the famed physicist Vuk Mandic, who is known not only for his work discovering gravitational waves and other exotic cosmic phenomenon, but his frequent dropping of the negative in mathematics.

"To vuk" means to unintentionally drop or change the negative in a piece of math.

Often used in past tense, in hindsight to an error, or future tense if your final results/prospects/exams seem dismal.
"As for the solution, it's either ± X, I vuk'ed it up." "You vuk'ed that up, it's supposed to be (positive/negative)."
"Half points if you vuk the final answer." "I'll just vuk up the exam problems anyway."
