Definition:Sequentially Compact Space

Definition

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

Let $H \subseteq S$.

Then $H$ is sequentially compact in $T$ if and only if every infinite sequence in $H$ has a subsequence which converges to a point in $S$.

Sequentially Compact in Itself

A subspace $H \subseteq S$ is sequentially compact in itself if and only if every infinite sequence in $H$ has a subsequence which converges to a point in $H$.

This is understood to mean that $H$ is sequentially compact when we consider it as a topological space with the induced topology of $T$.
