  Closed set - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In topology and related branches of mathematics, a closed set is a set whose complement is open.
The notion of closed set is defined above in terms of open sets, a concept that makes sense for topological spaces, as well as for other spaces that carry topological structures, such as metric spaces, differentiable manifolds, uniform spaces, and gauge spaces.
We have seen twice that whether a set is closed is relative; it depends on the space that it's embedded in.

 Encyclopedia: Closed set
In mathematics, the closure of a set S consists of all points which are intuitively close to S. A point which is in the closure of S is a point of closure of S. The notion of closure is in many ways dual to the notion of interior.
In mathematics the term countable set is used to describe the size of a set, e.
In mathematics, an Fσ set (said F-sigma set) is a countable union of closed sets.

An alternative characterization of closed sets is available via sequence (Serial arrangement in which things follow in logical order or a recurrent pattern) s and net (An open fabric of string or rope or wire woven together at regular intervals) s.
Any intersection (A junction where one street or road crosses another) of arbitrarily many closed sets is closed, and any union (The state of being joined or united or linked) of finitely (additional info and facts about finitely) many closed sets is closed.
The intersection property also allows one to define the closure (Termination of operations) of a set A in a space X, which is defined as the smallest closed subset of X that is a superset (additional info and facts about superset) of A.

Likewise, a closed map is a function which maps closed sets to closed sets.
The floor function from R to Z is open and closed (because Z carries the discrete topology).
In the first two cases, being open or closed is merely a sufficient condition for the result to follow.

 Infinitude of Primes - A Topological Proof
A finite union of closed sets is closed.
One may start with neighborhoods and deduce from their properties properties of open and closed sets or those of the operation of closure.
It's also possible to start with Statements 1 and 2 and the stipulation that the empty set and the whole space are closed, and define neighborhoods and open sets with all the expected properties of the latter.

Date: 07/01/2001 at 12:14:19 From: Doctor Ian Subject: Re: Algebra Hi Craig, A set of elements is closed under an operation if, when you apply the operation to elements of the set, you always get another element of the set.
For example, the whole numbers are closed under addition, because if you add two whole numbers, you always get another whole number - there is no way to get anything else.
So the statement that 'the complex numbers are closed under addition' means that if you add two complex numbers together, you are guaranteed to get a complex number as the sum.

 Introduction
The concept of an H-bounded set was defined by Lambrinos in [1] as a weakening of the notion of a bounded set which he defined in [2].
In particular a new characterization of H-bounded sets is given and the structure of H-bounded sets is explored.
Since every subset of a compact set is H-bounded, H-bounded sets need not be closed (which is not the case for compact sets, H-closed sets, or H-sets).

 Open and Closed Sets
It is fairly clear that when combining two open sets (either via union or intersection) the resulting set is again open, and the same statement should be true for closed sets.
The basic open (or closed) sets in the real line are the intervals, and they are certainly not complicated.
The worst-case scenario for the open sets, in fact, will be given in the next result, and we will concentrate on closed sets for much of the rest of this chapter.

Monotype Imaging’s closed caption font set supports the Federal Communications Commission’s requirements for closed captioning display on digital and analog television sets.
Requirements for closed captioning have existed since the 1990 passage of the Television Decoder Circuitry Act.
Devices affected by the rules include digital sets with wide-screen displays measuring at least 7.8 inches vertically, digital TVs with conventional displays measuring at least 13 inches vertically, and stand-alone digital TV tuners, whether or not they are marketed with display screens.

Applying this to the Church, 'closed set' believers have a 'territorial' concept of God's kingdom, enclosed within a boundary.
For 'open set' believers, membership of the Kingdom is defined by movement towards or away from Christ as centre.
Which set theory one adheres to has nothing to do with whether one's positions on specific doctrines are liberal or conservative.

Preliminary results indicate that, relative to the open-set condition, when the difficulty of alternatives is controlled, identification within the closed-set format is improved for hard, but not for easy, words.
It is hypothesized that the improved word recognition for hard words in closed-set formats is the result of reducing the viable candidate set.
In contrast, the already small candidate set of easy words minimizes the benefits of reducing the number of viable candidate items.
