The submarine dropped farther astern, fearing the probe of a bracket: he angled his course to bring both his guns in action.
"Merchantmen-at-Arms" by David W. Bone
Every ledge and angle and cheap bracket was crowded with photographs, and there were trees in his long row of boots.
"The Tower of Oblivion" by Oliver Onions
This was also shown in the end bracket angles uniting the beam to the posts.

In news:

Both lamps are mounted in a durable rubber housing with a galvanized multi-angle mounting bracket and 3' heavy duty cable.
No costly welders or special brackets are required to create endless interlocking angles.

In science:

Hereafter, angled brackets with subscript t and/or V denote averages over time and/or volume, respectively.
Magnetic dynamo action in random flows with zero and finite correlation times
The dihedral angle between 3-cells describes the extrinsic curvature in Regge calculus, therefore this abelian pair captures a scalar part of the ADM Poisson brackets, as we’ll make clearer in the next Section.
The twistorial structure of loop-gravity transition amplitudes
We will have a prior distribution over the stimulus x(t) given by a Gaussian process with zero mean and covariance function K (t, t′ ) = hx(t)x(t′ )i, where the angled brackets denote the average over the ensemble of Gaussian processes.
Dynamic State Estimation Based on Poisson Spike Trains: Towards a Theory of Optimal Encoding
The (cid:12)rst term in the angle brackets is Y , written explicitly as the exponential of the value of the variable E , which is written as the sum of its mean value, (cid:22) , plus a residual, R, from that mean.
Constrained realizations and minimum variance reconstruction of non-Gaussian random fields
N , and the angle brackets denote an average over t′ .
