Definition df-ceil 12550
Description: The ceiling (least integer greater than or equal to) function. Defined in ISO 80000-2:2009(E) operation 2-9.18 and the "NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions" , front introduction, "Common Notations and Definitions" section at http://dlmf.nist.gov/front/introduction#Sx4. See ceilval 12595 for its value, ceilge 12601 and ceilm1lt 12603 for its basic properties, and ceilcl 12599 for its closure. For example, (⌈‘(3 / 2)) = 2 while (⌈‘-(3 / 2)) = -1 (ex-ceil 27193).

The symbol is inspired by the gamma shaped left bracket of the usual notation. (Contributed by David A. Wheeler, 19-May-2015.)
