Definition

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

Let $A \subseteq S$.

Let $x \in S$.


Then $x$ is an accumulation point of $A$ if and only if:

$x \in \map \cl {A \setminus \set x}$

where $\cl$ denotes the (topological) closure of a set.

An accumulation point is also known as a cluster point.
