# Closed Extension Topology is not T1

## Theorem

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

Let $T^*_p = \struct {S^*_p, \tau^*_p}$ be the closed extension space of $T$.

Then $T^*_p$ is not a $T_1$ (Fréchet) space.

## Proof

By definition:

$\tau^*_p = \set {U \cup \set p: U \in \tau} \cup \set \O$

Let $x \in S^*_p, x \ne p$.

Let $U = \set p$.

Then $U \in \tau^*_p$ such that $p \in U, x \notin U$.

But there is no $V \in \tau^*_p$ such that $x \in V, p \notin V$, by definition of the closed extension topology.

Hence $T^*_p$ can not be a $T_1$ (Fréchet) space.
