Definition

Real Numbers

Let $S \subseteq \R$ be a subset of the set of real numbers.


Then $S$ is closed (in $\R$) if and only if its complement $\R \setminus S$ is an open set.


Real Euclidean Space

Let $n\geq1$ be a natural number.

Let $S \subseteq \R^n$ be a subset.


Then $S$ is closed (in $\R^n$) if and only if its complement $\R^n \setminus S$ is an open set.
