Single brackets

To get a single left curly bracket use $\left\{\ldots\right.$. Any type of bracket supported by LaTeX in maths mode can replace the curly bracket. Note the full stop: this stops LaTeX adding that bracket. To get a single bracket on the right hand side, swap the bracket type and the full stop: $\left.\ldots\right\}$.

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}

\begin{document}

$\left\{\ldots\right.$

$\left.\ldots\right\}$

\end{document}

I can’t remember where I found this, but it was on a forum explaining how to do one bracket with multiple lines of text inside it.
