This is discussed in The Guide To Latex (Kopka/Daly, 3rd ed., p 130,
sec. 5.4.1). You need automatic sizing of brackets, and a contained
array, as in
p\equiv\left\{\begin{array}{ll}1\pmod{4}&\Rightarrow F=\mathbb{Q}
(\sqrt{p})\\
3\pmod{4}&\Rightarrow F=\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{-p})\end{array}\right.
(which needs to be typeset in math mode). I didn't find anything in
the FAQ (not sure exactly what to search for); the automatic sizing
of brackets is discussed there.
HTH.
