It has been suggested that this page or section be merged into Definition:Open Region.In particular: This is defined in T&P just as "region" but it is clear from criterion $(1)$ that the region under discussion is definitely open.To discuss this page in more detail, feel free to use the talk page.When this work has been completed, you may remove this instance of `{{Mergeto}}` from the code. |

## Definition

A point set $R$ in the plane is a **region** if and only if:

- $(1): \quad$ Each point of $R$ is the center of a circle all of whose elements consist of points of $R$
- $(2): \quad$ Each point of $R$ can be joined by a curve consisting entirely of points of $R$.
