## Intersection and big intersection symbols in LaTeX

In mathematics, the intersection and big intersection symbols are used to represent the intersection of two sets or the intersection of multiple sets. In LaTeX, these symbols can be represented using the commands \cap and \bigcap, respectively.

## Usage of the \cap command

To write the intersection symbol in LaTeX, use the command \cap. For example:


$$A \cap B$$


$$A \cap B$$

This represents the intersection of two sets A and B.

## Usage of the \bigcap command

To write the big intersection symbol in LaTeX, use the command \bigcap. For example:


$$\bigcap_{i=1}^{n} A_i$$


$$\bigcap_{i=1}^{n} A_i$$

This represents the intersection of n sets $A_1, A_2, ..., A_n$.
