Let $X =$ {0, 1, 2, ...} and $T$ = { $\emptyset$, $X$, {0}, {1}, {0,2}, {0,1,3}, {0,1,2,4}, {0,1,2,3,5}, ... } $\cup$ {{0,1,2}, {0,1,2,3}, {0,1,2,3,4}, ... }. It is easily verified that $T$ forms a topology on $X$. Burdick has shown (Amer. Math. Monthly January 2006 p. 83) that the singleton {0} generates infinitely many distinct sets in this space under the operations of closure, complement and union. Q: Is this the only countably infinite topological space (up to homeomorphism) in which a finite seed set generates an infinite family under those three operations?

The answer seems to be yes. Burdick's and my solutions to the above Monthly problem both used this space. Even before seeing his solution I was led to think it's the only one that works.
