An amplifier is a device that uses a small amount of energy to control a larger amount. The relationship of the input to the output--usually expressed as a function of the input frequency--is called the transfer function of the amplifier, and the magnitude of the transfer function is termed the gain. Amplifiers are typically utilized over a specific range of frequencies and are generally of maximal utility if the gain is constant in that range.
