A factorization algebra is a prefactorization algebra satisfying a descent property that expresses how the factorization algebra on a large open set is determined, in a precise way, by its behavior on smaller open sets. Since there is a close relation between prefactorization algebras and precosheaves, we can think of this local-to-global property as the analog of the gluing axiom for sheaves.
