The subject of topology is rather abstract which means that it can be used in many different contexts. As a consequence it is fundamental for many branches in Mathematics. This paper is an introduction to point set topology. The notion of “closeness” is formalised and developed to define continuity of maps, connectedness of sets, convergence of sequences etc. There will be many familiar and unfamiliar examples to illustrate the power of this abstraction.
