The **Banu Abs** (Arabic: بنو عبس, lit. "sons of ʿAbs") are an ancient Bedouin tribe from central Arabia. They form a branch of the Ghatafan tribes. They still inhabit the Arabian Peninsula and North Africa. Of the earliest stories concerning this tribe was the famous classical love and war story of Antar and Abla.

The Banu Abs are of the Northern Arabized Arabs, meaning they descend from Adnan. The Banu Abs descend from Abs ibn Bughaydh ibn Raith ibn Ghatafan ibn Sa'd ibn Qais Ailan ibn Mudar ibn Nizar ibn Ma'ad ibn Adnan. They are related to numerous other Arabian tribes, being distant cousins of the Quraysh, Banu Tamim, and Banu Kinanah. The Banu Thibyaan and Mutayr are also descended from Ghatafan. The large and prestigious Banu Rasheed is descended from the Banu Abs; the great-grandfather of the Banu Rasheed is Rasheed al Zaul of the Banu Abs tribe.

In mathematics, the **absolute value** or **modulus** |*x*| of a real number x is the non-negative value of x without regard to its sign. Namely, |*x*| = *x* for a positive x, |*x*| = −*x* for a negative x (in which case −*x* is positive), and |0| = 0. For example, the absolute value of 3 is 3, and the absolute value of −3 is also 3. The absolute value of a number may be thought of as its distance from zero.

Generalisations of the absolute value for real numbers occur in a wide variety of mathematical settings. For example, an absolute value is also defined for the complex numbers, the quaternions, ordered rings, fields and vector spaces. The absolute value is closely related to the notions of magnitude, distance, and norm in various mathematical and physical contexts.

In 1806, Jean-Robert Argand introduced the term *module*, meaning *unit of measure* in French, specifically for the *complex* absolute value, and it was borrowed into English in 1866 as the Latin equivalent *modulus*. The term *absolute value* has been used in this sense from at least 1806 in French and 1857 in English. The notation |*x*|, with a vertical bar on each side, was introduced by Karl Weierstrass in 1841. Other names for *absolute value* include *numerical value* and *magnitude*.
