KILLER APPLICATION: A computer program that is so incredibly useful, popular, and profitable that the company responsible for development achieves enormous growth in a relatively short time period. Several computer companies developed killer applications during the 1980s and 1990s, which contributed greatly to the computer revolution. The Lotus 123 spreadsheet program was among the first, and perhaps most noted, killer applications. This program motivated millions of businesses and consumers in the early 1980ds to purchase personal computers.

HOMOGENEOUS OF DEGREE N: A property of an equation the exists if independent variables are increased by a constant value, then the dependent variable is increased by the value raised to the power of n. The value of n can be greater than, less than, or equal to one. This property often surfaces in the analysis of production functions. If n = 1, then a doubling independent variables results in a doubling of the dependent variable and the production function has constant returns to scale. If n > 1, then a doubling independent variables results in more than a doubling of the dependent variable and the production function has increasing returns to scale. If n < 1, then a doubling independent variables results in less than a doubling of the dependent variable and the production function has decreasing returns to scale.

AUTONOMOUS EXPENDITURES Expenditures on aggregate production by the four macroeconomic sectors that do not depend on income or production (especially national income or even gross domestic product). That is, changes in income do not generate changes in these expenditures. Each of the four aggregate expendituresconsumption, investment expenditures, government purchases, and net exportshave an autonomous component. Autonomous expenditures are affected by the ceteris paribus aggregate expenditures determinants and are measured by the intercept term of the aggregate expenditures line. The alternative to autonomous expenditures are induced expenditures, expenditures which do depend on income.
