multinomial, polynomial - a mathematical function that is the sum of a number of terms
math, mathematics, maths - a science (or group of related sciences) dealing with the logic of quantity and shape and arrangement
mathematical relation - a relation between mathematical expressions (such as equality or inequality)
expansion - a function expressed as a sum or product of terms; "the expansion of (a+b)^2 is a^2 + 2ab + b^2"
inverse function - a function obtained by expressing the dependent variable of one function as the independent variable of another; f and g are inverse functions if f(x)=y and g(y)=x
Kronecker delta - a function of two variables i and j that equals 1 when i=j and equals 0 otherwise
metric, metric function - a function of a topological space that gives, for any two points in the space, a value equal to the distance between them
transformation - (mathematics) a function that changes the position or direction of the axes of a coordinate system
isometry - a one-to-one mapping of one metric space into another metric space that preserves the distances between each pair of points; "the isometries of the cube"
operator - (mathematics) a symbol or function representing a mathematical operation
circular function, trigonometric function - function of an angle expressed as a ratio of the length of the sides of right-angled triangle containing the angle
threshold function - a function that takes the value 1 if a specified function of the arguments exceeds a given threshold and 0 otherwise
exponential, exponential function - a function in which an independent variable appears as an exponent

However, if the details of the mechanisms that manage the process are not known, and if the interpretation of data obtained in the experiment is in question, the mathematical function of the process can be empiric and the goodness of fit the model allowsones to evaluate the ability of compliance to the experimental data (Narinc et al., 2014a).
