U+2243 Asymptotically Equal To
U+2243 was added in Unicode version 1.1 in 1993. It belongs to the block
This character is a Math Symbol and is commonly used, that is, in no specific script.
The glyph is not a composition. It has no designated width in East Asian texts. In bidirectional text it acts as Other Neutral. When changing direction it is mirrored into
The CLDR project calls this character “asymptotically equal” for use in screen reading software. It assigns these additional labels, e.g. for search in emoji pickers: asymptote, mathematics.
The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:
In mathematical analysis, asymptotic analysis, also known as asymptotics, is a method of describing limiting behavior.
As an illustration, suppose that we are interested in the properties of a function f (n) as n becomes very large. If f(n) = n^{2} + 3n, then as n becomes very large, the term 3n becomes insignificant compared to n^{2}. The function f(n) is said to be "asymptotically equivalent to n^{2}, as n → ∞". This is often written symbolically as f (n) ~ n^{2}, which is read as "f(n) is asymptotic to n^{2}".
An example of an important asymptotic result is the prime number theorem. Let π(x) denote the primecounting function (which is not directly related to the constant pi), i.e. π(x) is the number of prime numbers that are less than or equal to x. Then the theorem states that
Asymptotic analysis is commonly used in computer science as part of the analysis of algorithms and is often expressed there in terms of big O notation.
