Theorem

Consider the subset $S$ of the complex plane defined as:

$S := \set {\dfrac i n : n \in \Z_{>0} }$

That is:

$S := \set {i, \dfrac i 2, \dfrac i 3, \dfrac i 4, \ldots}$

where $i$ is the imaginary unit.


$S$ is not an open region.


Proof

From Sequence of Imaginary Reciprocals: Openness, $S$ is not an open set.

From Sequence of Imaginary Reciprocals: Connectedness, $S$ is not connected.

Hence, by definition, $S$ is not an open region.

$\blacksquare$
