I wonder if it is possible to type out the Chinese quotation marks "「 」" within a math environment?

Maybe you're looking for \ulcorner and \lrcorner:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}

\begin{document}

$\ulcorner x\lrcorner$

\end{document}

Looks more like \lceil, \rfloor. I'd probably redefine them as left and right chinese quotes and i'd make a macro;

\newcommand{\lchquote}{\lceil}
\newcommand{\rchquote}{\rfloor}
\newcommand{\chquote}[1]{\ensuremath{\left\lchquote\, #1 \,\right\rchquote}}

so that, for example it would render aschquotes for large operators

  • Thanks. It is a good alternative. I was after the \ulcorner \lrcorner solution.
