dude, put your question in the box not in the subject heading.

there is no difference between absolute and modulas. both are same.

absolute value only considers +ve value and modulas also does the same.

i.e function(4.5) = 4
function( 9.99) = 9

Its called 'greatest integer' function or 'step function'. Its denoted as [x]

defined as [x] = n for n =< x < n+1

E.g. [x] = 1 for 1=< x < 2
= 2 for 2 =< x <3
and so on..
