In all mathematical libraries that I know it is
trunc()
Whereas
floor() is rounding to integer towards -infinity; the value is different
from trunc() if the argument is negative.
ceil() is rounding to integer towards +infinity,
round() is rounding to integer with undefined behaviour if half-way
between two integers.
