Mathematical notation for clipping

Is there a standard mathematical notation for restricting a scalar or an array of scalars to a range? I'm wanting to document a mathematical model that relies on value clipping such as that implemented by Python/numpy's 'clip' function (numpy.clip — NumPy v1.8.dev-63cd8f3 Manual (DRAFT)).

Cheers,

Will

I don't think there is a standard notation, A Ph.D. dissertation I am reading introduces the notation for min(a, b) (i.e., a, but not higher than b) and for max(a, b) (a, but not lower than b). Correspondingly, is either min(max(a, b), c) or max(min(a, c), b), which are the same thing when b <= c.

Thanks emakarov, that looks like a sensible notation.
