In regards to dm-crypt with LUKS, what is meant by “passphrase strengthening”?

On the Fedora wiki it is mentioned that LUKS offers this protection.

LUKS does provide passphrase strengthening but it is still a good idea to choose a good (meaning “difficult to guess”) passphrase.

What is it exactly and how is it accomplished?

I was curious if anyone on this board could give a complimentary answer. The more sources the better, although that answer is pretty comprehensive.
