Bc-Open Sets in Topological Spaces


In this paper, we introduce a new class of b-open sets called Bc-open, this class of sets lies strictly between the classes of θ-semi open and b-open sets. We also study its fundamental properties and compare it with some other types of sets and we investigate further topological properties of sets and we introduce and investigate new class of space named Bc-compact.
