For matrices, the colon notation A : B may be used. As ? and ? can be hard to type, the more “keyboard friendly” forms < and > are sometimes seen. These are avoided in mathematical texts.
The standard inner product between two vectors x = (2, 3) and y = (−1, 5) is:
?x, y? = 2 × −1 + 3 × 5 = 13
(linear) span of;
linear hull of
?S? means the span of S ? V. That is, it is the intersection of all subspaces of V which contain S.
?u1u2, …?is shorthand for ?{u1u2, …}?.


Note that the notation ?uv? may be ambiguous: it could mean the inner product or the linear span.

The span of S may also be written as Sp(S).

inner product of
?u | v? means the inner product of u and v, where u and v are members of an inner product space.[6] (u | v) means the same.

Another variant of the notation is ?uv? which is described above. For spatial vectors, the dot product notation, x·y is common. For matrices, the colon notation A : B may be used. As ? and ? can be hard to type, the more “keyboard friendly” forms < and > are sometimes seen. These are avoided in mathematical texts.

A general construction which subsumes the disjoint union of sets and of topological spaces, the free product of groups, and the direct sum of modules and vector spaces. The coproduct of a family of objects is essentially the "least specific" object to which each object in the family admits a morphism.

?
contour integral of
Similar to the integral, but used to denote a single integration over a closed curve or loop. It is sometimes used in physics texts involving equations regarding Gauss's Law, and while these formulas involve a closed surface integral, the representations describe only the first integration of the volume over the enclosing surface. Instances where the latter requires simultaneous double integration, the symbol would be more appropriate. A third related symbol is the closed volume integral, denoted by the symbol .

The contour integral can also frequently be found with a subscript capital letter C, ?C, denoting that a closed loop integral is, in fact, around a contour C, or sometimes dually appropriately, a circle C. In representations of Gauss's Law, a subscript capital S, ?S, is used to denote that the integration is over a closed surface.

If C is a Jordan curve about 0, then .
