I edited your post to remove some superfluous formatting.
The ? and : characters together are the "ternary operator." It's basically a shorthand way of writing "if/then". Another way to write exactly the same thing would be
if (theDX > MAX_V) theDX = MAX_V else theDX = theDX;
Of course, written out like this, the "else" part is redundant.
