## Definition

Let $M = \struct {A, d}$ be a metric space.

Let $a \in A$.

Let $\NN_a$ be the set of all neighborhoods of $a$ in $M$.

Then $\NN_a$ is the **system of neighborhoods** of the point $a$.

## Also known as

The **system of neighborhoods** of a point can also be referred to as the **complete system of neighborhoods** of that point.
