Hi, I have what I hope is a very simple question related to unfamiliar notation. I am looking through a maths paper on a topic related to set theory which contains a symbol,
and I would like to know how, if at all, it differs from the typical
symbol in terms of its meaning.
The context leads me to believe that it does not in fact differ at all but since I don't even know the name of the symbol other than the latex id that I looked up, I can't seem to confirm that suspicion. Cheers
edit: it seems that the latex renderer also does not know about this obscure symbol '\cupplus' but '\uplus' does work.
edit2: thanks for all the replies! however, since everyone commented rather than providing an answer it seems I cannot grant the coveted 'answer' status to anyone. the disjoint union makes the most sense.
