Folks, Generally speaking, what must I use to show that a certain set of elements is a closed subset of some other larger set for a certain norm? Thanks

Is this a question about a general topological space? You used the word norm. Does that imply that this is a metric space? Or is the some other setting altogether for closed subsets of elements?

Or is the some other setting altogether for closed subsets of elements? Yes, I am referring to a metric space....... (I suspect the question is too vague for a reasonable answer.) Thanks Plato.

For this example...is the set $\displaystyle \{z \in C[a,b]: u\le z(s)\le v \forall s \in [a,b]\} $ a closed subset in C[a,b] with the integral norm? How would i tackle this? thanks
