In this example, we have defined two set variables and we have performed different set operations: union, intersection, difference and symmetric difference.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of the following Python programming topics:

Python offers a datatype called set whose elements must be unique. It can be used to perform different set operations like union, intersection, difference and symmetric difference.

```
# Program to perform different set operations like in mathematics
# define three sets
E = {0, 2, 4, 6, 8};
N = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5};
# set union
print("Union of E and N is",E | N)
# set intersection
print("Intersection of E and N is",E & N)
# set difference
print("Difference of E and N is",E - N)
# set symmetric difference
print("Symmetric difference of E and N is",E ^ N)
```

**Output**

Union of E and N is {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8} Intersection of E and N is {2, 4} Difference of E and N is {8, 0, 6} Symmetric difference of E and N is {0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 8}

In this program, we take two different sets and perform different set operations on them. This can equivalently done by using set methods.
