Default N50 and N90 contig size refer to?

What is the general explanation of N50 and N90 contig size?
Regarding the "Instructions for scaffolding MIRA 454 contigs & 25KB paired-end data with BAMBUS.
Based on the MIRA Assembly Info/Bambus Scaffold info, can I know what is the N50 & N90 contig size refer to?
How can I obtain this value and how to calculate the N50 & N90 contig size?
Thanks a lot for all of your explanation and suggestion.
