In logic, a set of symbols is commonly used to express logical representation. The following table lists many common symbols together with their name, pronunciation, and the related field of mathematics. Additionally, the third column contains an informal definition, the fourth column gives a short example, the fifth and sixth give the unicode location and name for use in HTML documents.^{[1]} The last column provides the LaTeX symbol.

logical (inclusive) disjunction  The statement A ∨ B is true if A or B (or both) are true; if both are false, the statement is false.  n ≥ 4 ∨ n ≤ 2 ⇔ n ≠ 3 when n is a natural number.  U+2228 U+002B U+2225

These symbols are sorted by their Unicode value:

: ∧<span style="textdecoration: overline">∨</span>
: ∨Note that the following operators are rarely supported by natively installed fonts. If you wish to use these in a web page, you should always embed the necessary fonts so the page viewer can see the web page without having the necessary fonts installed in their computer.
As of 2014^{[update]} in Poland, the universal quantifier is sometimes written and the existential quantifier as .^{[6]}^{[7]} The same applies for Germany.^{[8]}^{[9]}
The ⇒ symbol is often used in text to mean "result" or "conclusion", as in "We examined whether to sell the product ⇒ We will not sell it". Also, the → symbol is often used to denote "changed to" as in the sentence "The interest rate changed. March 20% → April 21%".
We turn now to the second of our connective symbols, the centered dot, which is called the conjunction sign.
