Closest Wikipedia entry:  Value (computer science) — In computer science and software programming, a value is the representation of some entity that can be manipulated by a program. The members of a type are the values of that type.The "value of a variable" is given by the corresponding mapping in the environment. In languages with assignable variables, it becomes necessary to distinguish between the r-value (or contents) and the l-value (or location) of a variable.In declarative (high-level) languages, values have to be referentially transparent.
