# Accumulation Points for Sequence in Particular Point Space

## Theorem

Let $T = \struct {S, \tau_p}$ be a particular point space.

Let $\sequence {a_i}$ be an infinite sequence in $T$.

Let $\beta$ be an accumulation point of $\sequence {a_i}$.

Then $\beta$ is such that an infinite number of terms of $\sequence {a_i}$ are equal either to $\beta$ or to $p$.

## Proof

Let $\beta$ be an accumulation point of $\sequence {a_i}$.

Then by definition:

all open sets of $T$ which contain $\beta$ also contain an infinite number of terms of $\sequence {a_i}$.

This condition applies to the open set $\set {\beta, p}$.

So $\set {\beta, p}$ contains an infinite number of terms of $\sequence {a_i}$.

The result follows.
