That is mathematical logic talk
conjunction is logical "and"
disjunction is logical "or"
"and" is unambiguous English and
[ intersection of sets ]
"or" means either, or both
For example if I say A or B is true, then only A could be true or only B could be true or both could be true.
[ union of sets]
