2.36.1  Definition : set[]

To define a set of elements, put the elements separated by a comma, with %{ ... %} or set[ ... ] as delimiters.
Input :

%{1,2,3,4%}
set[1,2,3,4]

In the Xcas answers, the set delimiters are displayed as and in order not to confuse sets with lists. For example, 1,2,3 is the set %{1,2,3%}, unlike [1,2,3] (normal brackets) which is the list [1,2,3].
Input :

A:=%{1,2,3,4%} or A:=set[1,2,3,4]

Output :

1,2,3,4

Input :

B:=%{5,5,6,3,4%} or B:=set[5,5,6,3,4]

Output :

5,6,3,4

Remark
The order in a set is not significant and the elements in a set are all distincts. If you input B:=%{5,5,6,3,4%} and C:=%{3,4,5,3,6%}, then B==C will return 1.
