From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  product
  
      An expression in mathematics or
     computer programming consisting of two other expressions
     multiplied together.  In mathematics, multiplication is
     usually represented by juxtaposition, e.g. "x y", whereas in
     programming, "*" is used as an infix operator, e.g. "salary
     * tax_rate.
  
     In the most common type of product, each operand is a number
     ({integer, real number, fraction or imaginary number)
     but the term extends naturally to cover more complex
     operations like multiplying a string by an integer (e.g., in
     Perl, "foo" x 2) or multiplying vectors and matrices or
     more than two operands.
  
     In type systems, a tuple is sometimes known as a "product
     type".
