Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The way I've seen it used,V means union of sets and upside down triangle means intersection of sets.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK i'm leaning this: http://i47.tinypic.com/dxhdm8.jpg. the text means. Set X C R is lowerbounded if:....then that image i posted earlier. in this context what do the V and upside V mean?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large\bigvee_{m\in \mathbb R}\bigwedge_{x\in X}x\geq m\] \(x\) is greater than or equal to \(m\) , OR \(m\) is an element of the real numbers , And \(x\) is in the set \(X\) .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Rudy \(A\cup B\) is the union of sets \(A, B\) \(A\cap B\) is the intersection

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@tomiko I don't understand the language, but it seems 'real analysis' and I guess that it supposed to be, Set \[X \subset R\] is bounded from below, or have a lower bound if \[\forall m \in R, \exists x \in X, x \ge m\] we can say that, for all m in R, there exist x in X such that x greater than or equal to m, that's the usual symbol that I know... :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@chihiroasleaf exactly what i wanted!! thank to @UnkleRhaukus too!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but I think, \[X \subset R\] is said to have a lower bound if \[\exists m \in R,\] such that \[\forall x \in R \rightarrow x \ge m \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes.., they usually use for logic, it's my first time see these symbol use in this subject... :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but this is NOT logic. i know what they mean in logic. usually the in logic the "v" i smaller. but this one the "V" is very big and under it they write something like x is a member of R. this is definitely not logic.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes.., that's why I say that it's my first time see these symbol are used in this subject, but the definition is a bit different to what I know, may be you can read on this link about upper and lower bound of a set... If I refer to the usual definition of upper and lower bound than, V will mean 'there exist' and '^' will mean 'for all' http://www.emathzone.com/tutorials/realanalysis/upperandlowerbounds.html

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so, your image will mean \[\exists m \in R, \forall x \in X, x \ge m\] it will make sense if, we are talking about lower bound... sorry for the mistake...
