What is the difference between boost and weight

Boost parameter is used in the below example
wildcard": {
"City": {
"wildcard": "M",
"boost": 10
Can I use similar query for weight?

Where did you see weight?

function_score query

What is the difference between apply ^ and using boost?
Does these both refer to boost? Or is this below example of weight.
"query": {
"multi_match" : {
"query": "London",
"fields": [ "City", "AnotherCity^4" ]
