Date uses "union, intersection, difference, product, restrict, project, join, and divide."

If we are to use nouns we could have, "union, intersection, difference, product, restriction, projection, junction, and division."

If we are to use verbs we could have, "unite, intersect, subtract, multiply, restrict, project, join, and divide."
