If S and T are sets, then their union S ʜ T is the set that consists of all elements that are in S or T (or in both). The intersection of S and T is the set S ʝ T consisting of all elements that are in both S and T. In other words, S ʝ T is the common part of S and T. The empty set, denoted by л, is the set that contains no element.
