Don't be an ass "mate".

I'm not aware of ellipse symbols that match \circ in appearance, but the
best place to look is in the comprehensive symbol list at

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/symbols/comprehensive/

If you are still stuck after looking through that, you might resort to
the graphics package and \scalebox to stretch a \circ character into
an elliptical shape.

I don't know what operator "^^" might refer to.  Does it indicate a
zig-zag line over an object?  Similarly "__": isn't that just \underline?
(A straight \overline is also available.)
