Apr13 comment Strict ceiling and floor notation @Vikram I want the smallest integer strictly greater than $x$. Apr13 comment Strict ceiling and floor notation @Vikram That doesn't work. Consider $x = 0.95$ in $\lceil x + 0.1 \rceil$. Apr13 comment Strict ceiling and floor notation @JordanGlen That notation works great, thanks. Apr13 comment Strict ceiling and floor notation I'd definitely define it for the reader regardless of which notation I used, I was more looking for examples that other people had come up with, so I can pick one that I like. From the answers I'm getting, maybe I didn't make that clear enough. Apr13 asked Strict ceiling and floor notation Jan21 accepted Gradient of modulus of vector.

Aug18 accepted Polynomials vs polynomial functions Jul2 awarded Curious May30 comment Polynomials vs polynomial functions And the elements of $R[X]$ are in no way functions, so we can't write $f(x)$ for $f \in R[X]$? May30 comment Polynomials vs polynomial functions @GitGud So a polynomial function is determined by the values it takes when evaluated in the domain of the function, whereas a polynomial is determined by it's coefficients? May30 asked Polynomials vs polynomial functions May24 accepted What does d f(t,x) = 0 mean? May23 accepted Expression as argument in function definition May23 comment What does d f(t,x) = 0 mean? @ChristianBlatter What would be a less condensed way of writing this? I'm interested to know where the notation comes from. May23 comment What was the first bit of mathematics that made you realize that math is beautiful? (For children's book) @Cruncher which is zero. $\lim_{n \to \infty} 10^{-n} = 0$, as does $\lim_{n \to \infty} 10^{-n} b$, which corresponds to any $0.000...b_0...b_n$, where $b_k$ is the kth digit of the decimal expansion of b.
