Hello.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to grasp the notation for the definition of something called the weak q-norm, defined as

[itex]\|x\|_{q,w}^q = \sup\limits_{\epsilon > 0} \epsilon^q \left| \Big\{i \,|\, |x_i| > \epsilon \Big\} \right|[/itex]

I don't come from a pure math background so I've never seen this notation before but I was wondering if someone knew what the notation inside the "braces" mean:

Specifically what does [itex] \Big\{i \,|\, |x_i| > \epsilon \Big\} [/itex] mean?

I found it in the context of a lecture for a class in compressive sensing:

Thanks for any help you can provide.
