intersection
intersection
1. of sets. The set that results from combining elements common to two sets S and T, say, usually expressed as S ∩ T
∩ is regarded as an operation on sets, the intersection operation, which is commutative and associative. Symbolically S ∩ T = {x  x ∈ S and x ∈ T}
When two sets S and T intersect in the empty set, the sets are disjoint. Since the intersection operation is associative, it can be extended to deal with the intersection of several sets.
2. of two graphs, G_{1} and G_{2}. The graph that has as vertices those vertices common to G_{1} and G_{2} and as edges those edges common to G_{1} and G_{2}.
