Wedge () is a symbol used to represent:

In Unicode the symbol is encoded U+2227 Logical and (HTML ∧ · ∧) and by \wedge and \land in TeX. The opposite symbol (∨) is called a vel, or sometimes a (descending) wedge. Some authors who call the descending wedge 'vel' often call the ascending wedge ac (the corresponding Latin word for "and", also spelled "atque") keeping their usage parallel.

The wedge looks similar to the caret (^).
