A New Kind of Cluster Sets and Their Applications

C. K. Basu and M. K. Ghosh

Full-text: Open access


In this article, we introduce $s$-cluster sets of functions and multifunctions and investigate their various properties. Such investigations provide a new technique for studying $s$-closed spaces [7] and weakly Hausdorff spaces [9].
