From Topospaces
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

Definition
A topological space is termed a Baire space if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:
- A countable intersection of open dense subsets is dense
- A countable union of closed nowhere dense subsets is nowhere dense

Metaproperties
Hereditariness on open subsets
This property of topological spaces is hereditary on open subsets, or is open subspace-closed. In other words, any open subset of a topological space having this property, also has this property
For full proof, refer: Baire property is open subspace-closed
