Croom's definition reads as follows:

... and Singh's definition reads as follows:

The two definitions appear different ... ...

Croom requires that each

__contains a member of \(\displaystyle \mathcal{B}_a\) ...__

**open set containing a**while Singh requires each

__to contain some element of a member of \(\displaystyle \mathcal{B}_x\) ... and one notes that the open set (necessarily) contained in the nbd would necessarily intersect with a member of \(\displaystyle \mathcal{B}_x\) ... it would not necessarily contain the member of \(\displaystyle \mathcal{B}_x\) ... so I see the definitions as different ...__

**nbd of x**Is that correct?

If the definitions are indeed different ... which is the more common definition ...?

Further ... are their significant implications for further theory built on these definitions ...?

Help will be much appreciated ... ...

It may help MHB

readers of the above post to have access to Singh's definitions of a neighborhood (nbd) ...

Hope that helps ...
