This category contains definitions related to the quotient topology.

Related results can be found in Category:Quotient Topology.

Let $T = \struct {S, \tau}$ be a topological space.

Let $\RR \subseteq S \times S$ be an equivalence relation on $S$.

Let $q_\RR: S \to S / \RR$ be the quotient mapping induced by $\RR$.

### Definition 1

Let $\tau_\RR$ be the identification topology on $S / \RR$ by $q_\RR$:

- $\tau_\RR := \set {U \subseteq S / \RR: q_\RR^{-1} \sqbrk U \in \tau}$

Then $\tau_\RR$ is the **quotient topology on $S / \RR$ by $q_\RR$**.
