## openAn open interval is a piece of a straight line that doesn't
contain its endpoints; a half-open interval contains one
endpoint. On the number line, open intervals (a, b) are
defined as {x: a < x < b}. An open
set is one in which every point in the set has a neighborhood lying
in the set.## Related category• MATHEMATICAL TERMINOLOGY | |||||
