# completely Hausdorff

###### Definition 1.

 Let $(X,\tau)$ be a topological space  . Suppose that for any two different points $x,y\in X,x\neq y$, we can find two disjoint neighborhoods   $U_{x},V_{y}\in\tau,\qquad x\in U_{x},y\in Y_{y}$

 $\overline{U_{x}}\cap\overline{V_{y}}=\emptyset.$

Then we say that $(X,\tau)$ is a completely Hausdorff space or a $T_{2\frac{1}{2}}$ space.

## Notes

A synonym for functionally Hausdorff space is Urysohn space . Unfortunately, the definition of completely Hausdorff  and $T_{2\frac{1}{2}}$ are not as standard as one would like since. For example, the term completely Hausdorff space is also used to mean a functionally Hausdorff space (e.g. ). Nevertheless, in the present convention, we have the implication  :

 $\mbox{functionally Hausdorff}\Rightarrow\mbox{completely Hausdorff}\Rightarrow T% _{2}=\mbox{Hausdorff},$

which suggests why the $T_{2\frac{1}{2}}$ name have been used to denote both completely Hausdorff spaces and functionally Hausdorff spaces.
