# 8. Selected References

The references below are mostly restricted to those that specifically involve, entirely or partly, various generalized closure operator notions. Thus, the literature on generalized topological notions dealing with the vast zoo of various semi-open set notions, various types of separation axioms in generalized spaces, various generalized continuity notions, category-theoretic connections, etc. are not included unless I thought it had specific relevance to something discussed here.

The closure spaces of this book satisfy (semi-K1), (K3), and $T^2 \leq T.$ That is, from the topological closure operator axioms we drop half of (K1), (K2), and half of (K4).

Moore’s *extensionally attainable* property (defined on middle of p. 59) is often cited as an early, and perhaps the earliest, formulation of a general closure operator notion. Supposedly it is equivalent to a closure operator $T$ on a set that satisfies (semi-K1), (K3), and $T^2 \leq T$ (e.g. pp. 16-17 of Martin/Pollard **[45]**), but I have not attempted to verify this or consider whether such claims might be somewhat ahistorical.
