Definition df-fl 9598
Description: Define the floor (greatest integer less than or equal to) function. See flval 9600 for its value, flqlelt 9604 for its basic property, and flqcl 9601 for its closure. For example,  ( |_ `  (
3  /  2 ) )  =  1 while  ( |_ `  -u ( 3  /  2
) )  =  -u
2 (ex-fl 11083).

Although we define this on real numbers so that notations are similar to the Metamath Proof Explorer, in the absence of excluded middle few theorems will be possible for all real numbers. Imagine a real number which is around 2.99995 or 3.00001 . In order to determine whether its floor is 2 or 3, it would be necessary to compute the number to arbitrary precision.

The term "floor" was coined by Ken Iverson. He also invented a mathematical notation for floor, consisting of an L-shaped left bracket and its reflection as a right bracket. In APL, the left-bracket alone is used, and we borrow this idea. (Thanks to Paul Chapman for this information.) (Contributed by NM, 14-Nov-2004.)
