Null set
A null set is the same as an "empty set."  A null set is a set with no members (or elements).  The symbol for the null set is on the right.
It can also be written as an empty set of set brackets:  
                                      {   }
Putting the null set symbol inside the set brackets is a bad thing...  But, is a common mistake, so don't do it!
