This category contains results about Closure Operators in the context of Mapping Theory.

Definitions specific to this category can be found in Definitions/Closure Operators.

Let $\struct {S, \preceq}$ be an ordered set.

A **closure operator** on $S$ is a mapping:

- $\cl: S \to S$

which satisfies the following conditions for all elements $x, y \in S$:

$\cl$ is inflationary | \(\ds x \) | \(\ds \preceq \) | \(\ds \map \cl x \) | |||||

$\cl$ is increasing | \(\ds x \preceq y \) | \(\ds \implies \) | \(\ds \map \cl x \preceq \map \cl y \) | |||||

$\cl$ is idempotent | \(\ds \map \cl {\map \cl x} \) | \(\ds = \) | \(\ds \map \cl x \) |
