In Unicode the symbol is encoded U+2227 Logical and (HTML `&#8743;` · `&and;`) 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.
