### Random information on the term “Absolute”:

Absolute magnitude is a measure of the luminosity of a celestial object, on a logarithmic astronomical magnitude scale. An object’s absolute magnitude is defined to be equal to the apparent magnitude that the object would have if it were viewed from a distance of exactly 10 parsecs (32.6 light years), with no extinction (or dimming) of its light due to absorption by interstellar dust particles. By hypothetically placing all objects at a standard reference distance from the observer, their luminosities can be directly compared on a magnitude scale. As with all astronomical magnitudes, the absolute magnitude can be specified for different wavelength ranges corresponding to specified filter bands or passbands; for stars a commonly quoted absolute magnitude is the absolute visual magnitude, which uses the visual (V) band of the spectrum (in the UBV photometric system). Absolute magnitudes are denoted by a capital M, with a subscript representing the filter band used for measurement, such as MV for absolute magnitude in the V band.

### Random information on the term “TOTAL”:

In mathematics, a partial function from X to Y (written as f: X ↛ Y or f: X ⇸ Y) is a function f: X ′ → Y, for some subset X ′ of X. It generalizes the concept of a function f: X → Y by not forcing f to map every element of X to an element of Y (only some subset X ′ of X). If X ′ = X, then f is called a total function and is equivalent to a function. Partial functions are often used when the exact domain, X, is not known (e.g. many functions in computability theory[examples needed]).

Specifically, we will say that for any x ∈ X, either:

For example, we can consider the square root function restricted to the integers

Thus g(n) is only defined for n that are perfect squares (i.e., 0, 1, 4, 9, 16, …). So, g(25) = 5, but g(26) is undefined.

There are two distinct meanings in current mathematical usage for the notion of the domain of a partial function. Most mathematicians, including recursion theorists, use the term “domain of f” for the set of all values x such that f(x) is defined (X’ above). But some, particularly category theorists, consider the domain of a partial function f:X → Y to be X, and refer to X’ as the domain of definition. Similarly, the term range can refer to either the codomain or the image of a function.
