## Definition

### Definition with symbols

A topological space $X$ is termed monotonically normal if it is a T1 space (i.e., all points are closed) and there exists an operator $G$ from ordered pairs of disjoint closed sets to open sets, such that:

1. For any disjoint closed subsets $A,B$, $G(A,B)$ contains $A$ and its closure is disjoint from $B$
2. If $A \subseteq A'$ and $B' \subseteq B$ with all four sets being closed, $A$ disjoint from $B$, and $A'$ disjoint from $B'$, we have:

$G(A,B) \subseteq G(A',B')$

This is the monotonicity condition. Such an operator $G$ is termed a monotone normality operator.

This article defines a property of topological spaces: a property that can be evaluated to true/false for any topological space|View a complete list of properties of topological spaces
This is a variation of normality. View other variations of normality
