Binary operation symbols in LaTeX

Binary Operation Symbols are used to write and represent various binary operations such as star, union, intersection etc. on sets or numbers or in Boolean algebra. Thus, these symbols are of great importance. Our keyboard doesn’t have these symbols directly so we need to write them using LaTex codes.

1. Plus minus \pm \pm
2. Minus plus \mp \mp
3. Intersection of sets \cap \cap
4. Union of sets \cup \cup
5. Boolean union \vee \vee
6. Boolean intersection \wedge \wedge
7. Multiplication \times \times
