The notion of closure pervades mathematics, especially in the fields of topology and projective geometry. Demonstrating this pervasiveness in the field, this graduate-level book provides a complete introduction to closure systems. With an emphasis on finite spaces and algebraic closures, the text covers graph theory, ordered sets, lattices, projective geometry, and formal logic as they apply to the study of closures. Each chapter presents a vignette to illustrate the topic covered. The author also includes numerous exercises as well as concrete examples to support the material discussed.
