Floor and ceiling functions

In mathematics and computer science, the floor and ceiling functions map a real number to the largest previous or the smallest following integer, respectively. More precisely, floor(x) = \lfloor x\rfloor is the largest integer not greater than x and ceiling(x) =  \lceil x \rceil is the smallest integer not less than x.[1]
