The intersection of any non-empty family of topologies on is a topology on .

And this topology is weaker than all the above family of topologies and stronger than any topology

which is weaker than all these topologies.

This is the greatest lower bound of this family.

Let be a non-empty class of topological spaces and for each let be a mapping of ...
