What is an abstract in apatent application?

The abstract of a patent application serves as a brief overview of the invention, including its title, technical field, main features, and uses. However, it cannot be used to alter or clarify the description or claims, nor does it define the scope of protection. Due to its nature as a summary, the abstract may lack important technical details and result in uncertain boundaries of rights, potentially leading to legal disputes. As such, an abstract with insufficient technical information is only useful for reference purposes.
