defining mathematical symbols
I'm currently trying to write a program that requires me to generate some mathematical formulas. I've been able to use the extended ascii codes to represent some of them using code like below :
int i = 64;
String aChar = new Character((char)i).toString(); //Prints the ascii value of 64
Some operators are not supprted however. I was wondering whether anyone knows how to define the logical connective "and" and "or" symbols ('look like an 'upside-down' V and V respectively), as well as the symbols for universal and existensial quantification. Any help would be greatly appreciated
I don't know if the correct symbols are supported, but in code they are normally written as && (AND) and || (OR). Maybe you could use those instead?
I'm pretty sure those symbols don't exist in traditional character sets. You'd have to find/obtain a special font for it.
load up your charmap.exe (type charmap into start..run.. box) and look in there..
