The Compose key, also known as Multi_key on the X Window System, allows one to combine several keys into one character (e.g. compose o / to form ø, or compose = e to form €).

There is no compose key defined by default. The user can specify it in XkbOptions, or through graphical front-ends such as x11-misc/qxkb.
