# clarification in tf-idf formula

According to the wiki-article, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tf%E2%80%93idf the term frequency of term $t$ in document $d$ is given as follows: $$tf(t,d) = 0.5 + \frac{0.5 \times f(t,d)}{\max{\{f(w,d): w~\epsilon~d\}}}$$

This is the augmented way of computation. But what does $w$ stand for?

A document is modeled as a set $d$ of words. Since we're maximizing $f(w,d)$ over all $w\in d$, this means that $w$ ranges over all possible words contained in $d$.
