The expression $$ x^n=1\land \forall k<n\colon x^k\ne 1 $$

is a logical conjunction of the two terms

$$ x^n = 1$$ and $$ \forall k<n\colon x^k\ne 1 .$$

You might write it like this to make it clearer how the symbols are grouped into expressions: $$ (x^n=1)\land (\forall k<n\colon x^k\ne 1). $$

This conjunction is true if and only if $x^n=1$ is true and $\forall k<n\colon x^k\ne 1$ is true.

In this context, $\land$ is the logical AND operator \land.
