  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please add a minimal working example (MWE). Does the comments above solve your problem? – Bobyandbob Jul 12 '17 at 12:16

Using the comment of daleif you can write:



    A \coloneqq
    \bigcap_{\mathcal{B} \in \mathcal{S}} B =
    A \subset X \:\middle\lvert\:
    \parbox{45mm}{\raggedright if $\mathcal{B} \subset 2^{X}$ ist a $\sigma$-algebra such that $\mathcal{E} \subset \mathcal{B}$ then $A \in \mathcal{B}$}
