I have submitted my corrections of the proofs to a Wiley journal, in the corrections, I have corrected a typo in one of the equations, the typo was not made by the typesetter but rather by me, in the last version of the accepted paper. After they have sent me a link summarizing the made corrections, while scrolling though the proof, I found the following symbol (see attached image). enter image description here
