Perfectly normal space
From Topospaces
In the T family (properties of topological spaces related to separation axioms), this is called: T6
This is a variation of normality. View other variations of normality

Definition
A topological space is termed perfectly normal if it is normal and every closed subset is a G-delta subset ().
Formalisms
Subspace property implication formalism
This property of topological spaces can be encoded by the fact that one subspace property implies another
Modulo the assumption of the space being T1, the property of being perfectly normal can be encoded as:

Metaproperties
Hereditariness
This property of topological spaces is hereditary, or subspace-closed. In other words, any subspace (subset with the subspace topology) of a topological space with this property also has this property.

Any subspace of a perfectly normal space is perfectly normal.
