It introduces a lambda expression, which is kind of like an anonymous function--or a function that you don't give a name to. Lamda's are useful in scenarios where you have logic that depends on being passed a behavior rather than a piece of data. When I say "behavior," I basically mean a piece of functionality.

In your case, your lamda effectively passes the value of what is in the TableNum property to the DisplayFor method. The end result is that a <label> is spit out into your HTML for the data that TableNum holds.
