From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Explicit function. Math. See under Function.
 Syn: -- Express; clear; plain; open; unreserved; unambiguous.
 Usage: -- Explicit, Express. Explicit denotes a setting forth in the plainest language, so that the meaning can not be misunderstood; as, an explicit promise. Express is stronger than explicit: it adds force to clearness. An express promise or engagement is not only unambiguous, but stands out in bold relief, with the most binding hold on the conscience. An explicit statement; a clear and explicit notion; explicit direction; no words can be more explicit. An explicit command; an express prohibition. “An express declaration goes forcibly and directly to the point. An explicit declaration leaves nothing ambiguous.”  --C. J. Smith.
