Use google or any other search engine, do at least some research and come back with the questions you still have, but we are nit a homework service.

Nothing gross, I checked, and reading will make you learn more than me giving you a premade answer.

Bah...let me tell you this...reading it by yourself will stick the informations longer that you'd been told by someone else..beside, finding it by yourself will tell how much your intentions about the problem..

One of the objectives of learning is to make a definition by yourselves. It means that you understand the thing you learn about. If you still can't make it then you need to read more and more until at the end you can make a conclusion as your own definition. If your definition is good and correct, means that many people agree about it, it means that you are successful on things you are learning about. Don't depend on your textbook, try to study by yourselves, this is a common student disease: want something instantly tsk tsk :? 8)
