If A,B are sets, A\B = {a in A  a not in B}.
A\B is called the relative complement of B in A since it's the set of elements not in B, relative to a universe of A.
The operation (A,B) > A\B is called set subtraction, and a common alternate notation for A\B is AB.
Thus, regarding the elements of R^n as vectors, (R^n)\{0} denotes the set of vectors in R^n other than the zero vector.
