# Definition:Closed Set/Topology/Definition 2

## Definition

Let $T = \left({S, \tau}\right)$ be a topological space.

Let $H \subseteq S$.

**$H$ is closed (in $T$)** if and only if every limit point of $H$ is also a point of $H$.

That is, by the definition of the derived set:

**$H$ is closed (in $T$)**if and only if $H' \subseteq H$

where $H'$ denotes the derived set of $H$.
