Uniqueness Quantifier ∃!

A formula that uses a uniqueness quantifier expresses that there exists one and only one number with a particular property. For example, (E! x (= (* (2) x) (6))) means that there exists some number x for which (= (* (2) x) (6)) and no other numbers satisfy this property. Uniqueness quantifiers are part of predicate calculus.
