Interval - Notation, Applications

real endpoints set closed

An interval is a set containing all the real numbers located between any two specific real numbers on the number line. It is a property of the set of real numbers that between any two real numbers, there are infinitely many more. Thus, an interval is an infinite set. An interval may contain its endpoints, in which case it is called a closed interval. If it does not contain its endpoints, it is an open interval. Intervals that include one or the other of, but not both, endpoints are referred to as half-open or half-closed.
