Set Notations in LaTeX

Set notation –
In set theory and its applications to logic, mathematics, and computer science, set-builder notation is a mathematical notation for describing a set by enumerating its elements or stating the properties that its members must satisfy.

For example, empty set is represented as \varnothing.

So Let’s see the latex code of Set Notations one by one.

Set notation and their Latex Code :

1. empty set \varnothing \varnothing
2. set of natural numbers \mathbb{N} \mathbb{N}
3. set of integers \mathbb{Z} \mathbb{Z}
4. set of rational numbers \mathbb{Q} \mathbb{Q}
5. set of algebraic numbers \mathbb{A} \mathbb{A}
6. set of real numbers \mathbb{R} \mathbb{R}
7. set of complex numbers \mathbb{C} \mathbb{C}
8. is member of \in ]\in
9. is not member of \notin \notin
10. owns (has member) \ni \ni
11. is proper subset of \subset \subset
12. is subset of \subseteq \subseteq
