## Definition

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

### Definition 1

$\struct {S, \tau}$ is a **Fréchet space** or **$T_1$ space** if and only if:

- $\forall x, y \in S$ such that $x \ne y$, both:
- $\exists U \in \tau: x \in U, y \notin U$

- and:
- $\exists V \in \tau: y \in V, x \notin V$

### Definition 2

$\struct {S, \tau}$ is a **Fréchet space** or **$T_1$ space** if and only if all points of $S$ are closed in $T$.

## Also known as

A **Fréchet Space** is also commonly referred to as a **$T_1$ space**. On $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ both terms are used, frequently together.

A $T_1$ space is also known as an **accessible space**.
