 for transfer of control
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  transfer of control
      To cause execution of a program to continue
     from a different address instead of proceding sequentially to
     the next instruction.  This may happen as a result of a jump
     instruction or some kind of interrupt.
     This term is more common when discussing machine code, the
     high-level language equivalent is a goto statement.
