- A subset $Y$ of a topological space $X$ is said to be locally closed if it is the intersection of an open and a closed subset.

The following result provides some definitions:

- The following are equivalent:

1. 1.

$Y$ is locally closed in $X$.

2. 2.

Each point in $Y$ has an open neighborhood $U\subseteq X$ such that $U\cap Y$ is closed in $U$ (with the subspace topology).

3. 3.

$Y$ is open in its closure $\overline{Y}$ (with the subspace topology).
