User Data Protocol - UDP is described in RFC 768.

User Data Protocol (UDP) is a connectionless transport protocol. UDP is an application interface to IP. It adds no reliability, (but does have a checksum that computes header and data) flow control, or error recovery to IP. It simply muxes both input and outputs for sending and receiving data blocks, using ports to direct the data frames. UDP is a simple protocol with very minimal overhead. The responsibility of recovering from errors, retransmission, etc., is up to the application. Applications that need to communicate need to identify a target is more specific than simply the IP address. UDP provides this function via the concept of ports. The protocol needs the have the source and destination ports to identify the endpoints within the headers. 

Although UDP does not implement flow control or reliable/ordered delivery, it does little more work than simply to de-multiplex messages to some application—it ensures the correctness of the message via the checksum. UDP uses the same checksum algorithm as IP.
