That is, whenever P is applied twice to any value, it gives the same result as if it were applied once (idempotent). It leaves its image unchanged. Though abstract, this definition of `proje...

Projection

Geographically, a method whereby the outlines of features on the surface of the world may be represented on a map. As the world is spherical whereas the map is flat, the outlines on maps are only approximations to the true outlines on the world itself. Well-known projections include Mercator's, Cassini's Gnomonic, and Gauss Conformal.
