## Theorem

Let $\struct {S, \preceq, \tau}$ be a generalized ordered space by Definition 3:

$\struct {S, \preceq, \tau}$ is a **generalized ordered space** if and only if:

- $(1): \quad \struct {S, \tau}$ is a Hausdorff space

- $(2): \quad$ there exists a sub-basis for $\struct {S, \tau}$ each of whose elements is an upper section or lower section in $S$.

Then $\struct {S, \preceq, \tau}$ is a generalized ordered space by Definition 1:

$\struct {S, \preceq, \tau}$ is a **generalized ordered space** if and only if:

- $(1): \quad \struct {S, \tau}$ is a Hausdorff space

## Proof

Let $\SS$ be a sub-basis for $\tau$ consisting of upper sections and lower sections.

Let $\BB$ be the set of intersections of finite subsets of $\SS$.

By Upper Section is Convex, Lower Section is Convex and Intersection of Convex Sets is Convex Set (Order Theory) :

This article, or a section of it, needs explaining.In particular: Link to theorem on why this is a basis.You can help $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ by explaining it.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 `{{Explain}}` from the code. |

But $\BB$ is a basis for $\tau$.

Therefore $\tau$ has a basis consisting of convex sets.
