A transformation in the context of Obtics means an object that takes an input source and from that source calculates an output. A transformation therefore is much like a function. The difference is that a function gives a one-time result and is never reactive or observable where a transformation can continualy update its output. A transformation object is usually the result of a function.

Notably the transformation itself is a static object even though its output may be volatile.

Multiple transformation objects may be chained to form a transformation pipeline.
