Theorem

Let $T = \struct {S, \tau}$ be the Arens-Fort space.


Every neighborhood of $\tuple {0, 0}$ is closed in $T$.


Proof

Let $H \subseteq T$ such that:

$\exists U \in \tau: \tuple {0, 0} \in U \subseteq H \subseteq S$

that is: such that $H$ is a neighborhood of $\tuple {0, 0}$ in $T$.

As $\tuple {0, 0} \in H$ it follows that $\tuple {0, 0} \notin \relcomp S H$.

So, by definition of the Arens-Fort space, $\relcomp S H$ is open in $T$.

So by definition, we have that $H$ is closed.

$\blacksquare$
