## Definition

Let $T$ be a topological space.

Let $I \subset \R$ be the closed real interval $\left[{a \,.\,.\, b}\right]$.

Let $\gamma: I \to T$ be a path in $T$.

The **final point** of $\gamma$ is $\gamma \left({b}\right)$.

That is, the path **ends** (or **finishes**) at $\gamma \left({b}\right)$.
