Graphic topology on tournaments

  • Jamel Dammak EMAIL logo and Rahma Salem


Alexandroff spaces are the topological spaces in which the intersection of arbitrary many open sets is open. Let T be an indecomposable tournament. In this paper, first, we associate a trivial topology to T. Then we define another topology on T, called the graphic topology of T, and we show that it is an Alexandroff topology. Our motivation is to investigate some properties of this topology.
