Mathematical Operators

Ten characters have been selected from this range, which contains 256 characters in the Unicode Standard v. 5.1. Because six of them have a non-mathematical usage, alternative MUFI descriptive names have been assigned. Note that 223B has a duplicate code point in Junicode (v. 0.6.12).

Glyph EntityNumericCodepoint ChartDescriptionVersion Andron
2212−−2212MathOpMINUSUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
This is an unambiguous minus sign. The hyphen sign, 002D, is usually unified with the minus sign and is for this reason called HYPHEN-MINUS.
221E∞∞221EMathOpINFINITYUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
2227&logand;∧2227MathOpLOGICAL ANDUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
This character can also be used as a metrical symbol. In that case we recommend the entity name ‘&metrpause;’ and the corresponding descriptive name METRICAL SYMBOL PAUSE. See also the list of metrical symbols in section 9 below.
2234&tridotupw;∴2234MathOpTHEREFOREUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
For this character, the ISO entity name ‘∴’ has been supplanted with ‘&tridotupw;’.
2235&tridotdw;∵2235MathOpBECAUSEUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
PUNCTUATION MARK DOWNWARDS- POINTING TRIANGULAR DOTS — This character can also be used as a punctuation mark, but we recommend F1EE in the Private Use Area (p. 128 below) as a punctuation character.
2237&quaddot;∷2237MathOpPROPORTIONUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
PUNCTUATION MARK FOUR DOTS — This character can also be used as a punctuation mark, but we recommend F1ED in the Private Use Area (p. 128 below) as a punctuation character.
223B&est;∻223B
Junicode: F150

22D7&dipledot;⋗22D7MathOpGREATER-THAN WITH DOTUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
DIPLE WITH DOT — The Unicode name for this character is GREATER-THAN WITH DOT, but it can also be used as a punctuation mark and is therefore given another name here, DIPLE WITH DOT. Cf. Malcolm B. Parkes, Pause and Effect, Aldershot, 1992, pp. 301 and 303.
