sudo is the command that gives the user temporary administrative rights, which entails much more than just installing software. Since Linux by default does not allow for installation or modifications to the system, a user needs some way to temporarily gain the ability to do so.
The man pages for sudo explain the syntax and switches. Also related is the sudoers configuration file.
