    I cant find these symbols. Could you name any other reference or some paper where you have seen them. They don't seem to be in unicode for now. – LaRiFaRi Jun 12 '14 at 9:01

    the "Conditioned" symbol resembles unicode 27ED. although that is intended as a right delimiter; that would be in the stix or xits fonts. the other is not in unicode. if, as requested by @LaRiFaRi, another published reference can be found using these symbols, i will be happy to submit them for unicode consideration. – barbara beeton Jun 12 '14 at 12:44
  • There's a posting about another way to add symbols that may help. – Tom Zych Jun 25 '14 at 11:07

I've got the feeling that these two symbols do not exist in the unicode standard. So I would recommend to draw them by yourself in TikZ or to copy the images and include them using the package graphicx.

If you can find any other references for these symbols, you can submit them to unicode or to the font developer of your choice.

Barbara Beeton surmises that the "Conditioned" symbol could be the unicode U+27ED. I am not sure, if this is the correct sign, but I have searched similar closing (right) delimiters for you. Maybe, one of them is fine for you.

The normal sign for distributed is a standard tilde. So maybe you do not even need the exotic symbol of Mathematica. Search this homepage for normal, wide, and bold tildes in all forms and colors...
