# Single square bracket in tabular

I am trying to type out the following in a tabular:

\begin{tabular}{ >{\bfseries}l c >{$}l<{$} }
winkel & = &  \left  [0, 360 \)\cup \{\bot \} \right \\
\end{tabular}


However, the square bracket after \left gives me an error message every time, saying that I have to close it. Is there any way I can get around this? I really just want one square bracket...

• Welcome to TeX.SE. I suggest you get rid of both \left and \right. – Mico Apr 24 '18 at 7:30

Neither the \left nor the \right directives are needed. Get rid of them both. I can also see no reason for encasing \bot in a pair of curly braces.
Furthermore, you may want to modify the column type of the middle column to get better spacing around the = symbol -- a "relational operator" in TeX-speak.
