Connected Set

 

(in mathematics), a set of points that is, as it were, all in one piece. In other words, a connected set is a set such that for any division of it into two disjoint nonempty subsets one of the subsets contains a limit point of the other (seeLIMIT POINT). The only connected sets on a line are intervals (seeINTERVAL AND SEGMENT). Examples of connected sets in the plane and in space are the circle, the sphere, and any convex set (seeCONVEX BODY). In Euclidean space an open set is connected if and only if any two of its points can be joined by a broken line lying entirely in the set. Compact connected sets are called continua.
