Definition

Symbol-free definition

A topological space is said to be H-closed if, for any embedding of it as a subspace of a Hausdorff space, it is a closed subset.

Equivalently, for any open cover, we can find a finite subcollection such that the union of the closures of the members, is the whole space.
