# Urysohn Space is Completely Hausdorff Space

Jump to navigation Jump to search

## Theorem

Let $\left({S, \tau}\right)$ be an Urysohn space.

Then $\left({S, \tau}\right)$ is also a $T_{2 \frac 1 2}$ (completely Hausdorff) space.

## Proof

Let $T = \left({S, \tau}\right)$ be an Urysohn space.

Then for any distinct points $x, y \in S$ (i.e. $x \ne y$), there exists an Urysohn function for $\left\{{x}\right\}$ and $\left\{{y}\right\}$.

Thus:

$\forall x, y \in S: x \ne y: \exists U, V \in \tau: x \in U, y \in V: U^- \cap V^- = \varnothing$

which is precisely the definition of a $T_{2 \frac 1 2}$ (completely Hausdorff) space.
