## Topology

$\tau$

Frequently used, and conventionally in many texts, to denote a general topology.

It is usually introduced as part of the notation $T = \struct {S, \tau}$ for a general topological space.

The $\LaTeX$ code for $\tau$ is \tau .

## Linguistic Note

The name of the Greek letter $\tau$ (tau) is properly pronounced to rhyme with cow not caw.
