    What does this symbol mean?

    Hi,

    I've want to know what this symbol means.

    What does this symbol mean?-screenshot.png

    I know the symbol for "floor" function and for "ceiling" function. But I'm unable to find out what this means. Anyone?

    Where did you see this usage?
    Perhaps giving some context for the usage might help in guessing.

    It's usually meant to mean the nearest integer function.
