## Theorem

Let $V$ be a topological vector space.

Let $\paren {M_i}_{i \in I}$ be an $I$-indexed collection of closed linear subspaces of $V$.

Then $M := \displaystyle \bigcap_{i \mathop \in I} M_i$ is also a closed linear subspace of $V$.

## Proof

By Linear Subspaces Closed under Intersection, $M$ is a linear subspace of $V$.

By Topology Defined by Closed Sets, the intersection of closed sets is again closed.

As the $M_i$ are all closed, it follows that $M$ is closed.

Hence $M$ is a closed linear subspace of $V$.
