Consider with the topology generated by , which is a T0 space. The derived set of is , which is open.

If this is Lynn Steen’s Left Order Topology, then isn’t it true that is a limit point of
If so, then is in the derived set of
If that is so, what is its complement?

We may be using slightly different definitions. I use "derived set" to mean the set of all accumulation points of a set . Hence, if is singleton, it cannot be contained in its own derived set by definition.

You are correct. I was not thinking of a singleton set.
In fact, I don't know what I had in mind.
Maybe I really don't know.
