  1. parameter(noun)

    A variable kept constant during an experiment, calculation or similar.

    Synonyms:
    feature, distinguishing

  2. parameter(noun)

    A name in a function or subroutine definition that is replaced by, or bound to, the corresponding actual argument when the function or subroutine is called: a formal parameter.

    Roughly, a tuple of arguments could be thought of as a vector, whereas a tuple of parameters could be thought of as a covector (i.e., linear functional). When a function is called, a parameter tuple becomes bound to an argument tuple, allowing the function instance itself to be computed to yield a return value. This would be roughly analogous to applying a covector to a vector (by taking their dot product (or, rather, matrix-product of row vector and column vector)) to obtain a scalar.

    Synonyms:
    distinguishing, feature

  3. parameter(noun)

    The value which is passed into the function to instantiate such a name; the argument or actual parameter.
