# Perfect set

A subset $F$ of a topological space $X$ which is both closed and dense-in-itself. In other words, $F$ coincides with its derived set. A perfect topological space is therefore a topological space with no isolated points. Examples are $\mathbb R^n$ and $\mathbb C^n$ (with the standard topology induced by the Euclidean distance), the Cantor set (which is a perfect subset of $\mathbb R$) and the Baire space.
