What is the meaning of the struct keyword in the definitions on this page? Where can I find the documentation for this?

To be accepted, a Fixpoint definition has to satisfy syntactical constraints on a special argument called the decreasing argument. They are needed to ensure that the Fixpoint definition always terminates. The point of the {struct ident} annotation (see fixannot) is to let the user tell the system which argument decreases along the recursive calls.
