## Definition

Let $S$ be a set.

Let $\cl: \powerset S \to \powerset S$ be a closure operator.

Let $T \subseteq S$ be a subset.

### Definition 1

The subset $T$ is **closed** (with respect to $\cl$) if and only if:

- $\map \cl T = T$

### Definition 2

The subset $T$ is **closed** (with respect to $\cl$) if and only if $T$ is in the image of $\cl$:

- $T \in \Img \cl$
