    Both words mean exactly the same. – Anna A. Fitzgerald Jul 1 at 10:55
  • Could you give a sentence for context, please? 'Mathematical texts' is helpful but more context is better :) – DM_with_secrets Jul 1 at 11:29
  • The best thing to do might be to read other mathematical papers in the same area by established mathematicians, and use whichever term they use – DM_with_secrets Jul 1 at 11:31

    Google Ngram Viewer shows that nonequivalent is twice as common as inequivalent. – Jason Bassford Jul 1 at 14:13
