parameter (PAR)

Parameters are defined conditions in the form of a function, characteristic features, characteristic values or variables.

Parameters are used in all mathematical, technical and scientific disciplines for the characterization of properties. They are equally used for the calculation and determination of characteristic values or as selection criteria for technical products.

In programming, parameters are used for the execution of program-technical control functions. They can be critical information points of a program, a utility program or an application interface to execute prescribed functions.
