FilledSmallSquareCeiling[x] gives the smallest integer greater than or equal to x.

FilledSmallSquare Mathematical function (see Section A.3.10).

FilledSmallSquare Examples: Ceiling[2.4] LongRightArrow; Ceiling[2.6] LongRightArrow; Ceiling[-2.4] LongRightArrow; Ceiling[-2.6] LongRightArrow.

FilledSmallSquareCeiling[x] can be entered in StandardForm and InputForm as x , AliasIndicatorlcAliasIndicator x AliasIndicatorrcAliasIndicator or \[LeftCeiling] x \[RightCeiling].

FilledSmallSquareCeiling[x] returns an integer when x is any numeric quantity, whether or not it is an explicit number.

FilledSmallSquare Example: Ceiling[Pi^2] LongRightArrow.

FilledSmallSquare For exact numeric quantities, Ceiling internally uses numerical approximations to establish its result. This process can be affected by the setting of the global variable $MaxExtraPrecision.
