What does 'quotient of one set with other' means...? Also, what is the quotient of CFL with Regular Set...?

A quotient set is usually a set of representatives of an initial set for a given equivalence relation (i.e. you partition your initial set according to a certain rule called "equivalence relation"; the subsets constituting this partition are called "equivalence classes").

But now I want to typeset the quotient set S/~. If I write $S/\sim$, it comes out looking ugly: there is extra whitespace on both sides of the "~" symbol.
