A Hausdorff space is a topological space in which each pair of distinct points can be separated by disjoint open set.
In other words, a topological space is said to be a space or Hausdorff space if for any , there exist open sets and such that and .
Let be a non-empty set with topology (all the subsets of , powers set or discrete topology). Hence
For and is a space.
• Every metric space is Hausdorff space.
• Every space is a space but the converse may not be true.
• Every subspace of space is space.
• In a Hausdorff space, any point and a disjoint compact subspace can be separated by open sets, in the sense that there exist disjoint open sets one contains the point and the other contains the compact subspace.
• Every compact subspace of Hausdorff space is closed.
• A one-to-one continuous mapping of a compact onto a Hausdorff space is homeomorphism.
• Let , be continuous functions from a space to a Hausdorff space and suppose that for all in a dense subset of . Then for all in .
• A space is Hausdorff space if and only if every point of is the intersection of its closed neighbourhoods.
• Let be a topological space and a Hausdorff space. Let and be continuous function from to , then the set is a closed set.
