Equivelency, I believe.
IIRC, that symbol means, "is defined as".
Isn't that congruency?
are you sure it's not an equal sign with a squigly line above it?
Some equals are more equal than others.
It's the standard sign for congruency in modular arithmetic, if that's what setting you are in. := is "defined as" in most math software.
"Identically equal to," if I remember correctly.
it means whatever is on the left will always equal what is on the right I think.
Depending on the context it's either "congruent to" or "identically equal to". It's mainly used as "congruent to" when dealing with modular arithmetic.
Maybe like = versus == in programming/scripting?
IT means like REALLY freaking equal.
i think that only applies in non-mathematic situations though
This is right...well, whenever I've seen it used recently, but I have seen it used in other terms too. But this is the one I see most commonly in physics and calc.
