Those are bitwise operators

$a &= $b is the same as $a = $a & $b (bitwise and)
$a |= $b is the same as $a = $a | $b (bitwise or)

$a <<= 2 is the same as $a = $a << 2 (leftshifting bits)

(leftshifting 2 bits is the same as multiplying by 4, 3 bits is times 8, 4 bits, times 16, etc).

Bitwise operators work on binairy forms of data (the zero's and one's.)

So 2 & 3 equals in binairy code 0010 && 0011 => 0010 (only the second one from the right is in both binairy

0101 << 1 is the same as putting all zero's and one's one position to the left: 1010
0101 << 3: 1000
0101 >> 1: (shift to right) 0010
0101 >> 3: 0001
