In mathematics, the gamma function is an extension of the factorial function, with its argument shifted down by 1, to real and complex numbers.

Value (mathematics)
In mathematics, value commonly refers to the output of a function. In the most basic case, that of unary, single-valued functions, there is one input and one output (the value of the function). A real-valued function is a function that associates to every element of the domain a real number in the image. Example: If the function is defined by prescribing that for each real number, then the input 3 will yield the function value 10 (since indeed {{{1}}}).

Subroutine
In computer science, a subroutine, also termed procedure, function, routine, method, or subprogram, is a part of source code within a larger computer program that performs a specific task and is relatively independent of the remaining code. As the name subprogram suggests, a subroutine behaves in much the same way as a computer program that is used as one step in a larger program or another subprogram.

Bessel function
In mathematics, Bessel functions, first defined by the mathematician Daniel Bernoulli and generalized by Friedrich Bessel, are canonical solutions y(x) of Bessel's differential equation: for an arbitrary real or complex number α (the order of the Bessel function); the most common and important cases are for α an integer or half-integer. Although α and −α produce the same differential equation, it is conventional to define different Bessel functions for these two orders (e.g.

Accuracy and precision
In the fields of science, engineering, industry and statistics, the accuracy of a measurement system is the degree of closeness of measurements of a quantity to that quantity's actual (true) value. The precision of a measurement system, also called reproducibility or repeatability, is the degree to which repeated measurements under unchanged conditions show the same results.

Algorithm
In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm Listen/ˈælɡərɪðəm/ (originating from al-Khwārizmī, the famous mathematician Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī) is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculation, data processing, and automated reasoning. More precisely, an algorithm is an effective method expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function.
