x ∈ R ⊕ R

^{⊥}

R is a set I think, but I'm not sure what the perpendicular symbol means.

Also am I correct in thinking the circled plus means that x must be in either R or R

^{⊥}(but not both)?

Thanks

It's usually read as "R perp".I'm looking at a condition in a maths paper that I don't understand, essentially it is:

x ∈ R ⊕ R^{⊥}

x = a+b, where a belongs to R and b belongs to R perp.
