    Actually, I've never seen a precise definition of this. If you're just looking to understand some problem, the most common 'definition' I've ever seen considers that all functions which differ by constants, multiplied or summed, belong to the same family.

    Also, you may consider that all functions that belong to the same "big O group" are in the same family in most contexts.
