In science:

We will assume that the reader is familiar with continuous model theory as it is developed in the papers [BU] and [BBHU08], including the notions of a structure, pre-structure, signature, theory, and model of a theory. A pre-model of a theory is a pre-structure which satisfies each statement in the theory.
