Hi,
I'm studying computation theory and this symbol that looks like a capital A without the middle bar is used to denote the empty string. What is it called? Thanks. EDIT: Looks like its a capital lambda?

Capital lambda ([itex]\Lambda[/itex]) sounds right. I have seen it used to denote the null string.

For future reference:
http://detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html is a good site where you can draw a symbol and it will identify it for you ( or try to )
