There is a table of letters

that denote types of notes, e.g., quarter, eighth, etc.
Where are those? I’ve looked enough now, so it’s time to ask.
They show up in time signatures like “q=72” or “e=144” etc.
Where are those q’s and e’s defined? Under what heading or subheading, etc, or page number or ??
I know I’ve seen them, but I can’t find where.

They are used in tempo marks (for the metronome value), tuplet ratios, and when adding or removing beats.
