What is the difference between project definition and project charter?

Project definition and project charter, aren't they the same thing? Sometimes it looks like that they are, sometimes it doesn't (depending on the article I'm reading). It seems that for those who differ between the two regard project definition as a summary of the project charter.

Thanks for whoever can clarify this once and for all!

They are the same, the project charter is also known as:

- The project definition
- The project definition report
- The terms of reference

Most project managers use the term "project charter", and rare are those who use the term "project definition" instead.
