#### Abstract

An ideal topological space is a triplet (, , ), where is a nonempty set, is a topology on , and is an ideal of subsets of . In this paper, we introduce -perfect, -perfect, and -perfect sets in ideal spaces and study their properties. We obtained a characterization for compatible ideals via -perfect sets. Also, we obtain a generalized topology via ideals which is finer than using -perfect sets on a finite set.

#### 1. Introduction and Preliminaries

The contributions of Hamlett and Jankovic [1–4] in ideal topological spaces initiated the generalization of some important properties in general topology via topological ideals. The properties like decomposition of continuity, separation axioms, connectedness, compactness, and resolvability [5–9] have been generalized using the concept of ideals in topological spaces.

By a space , we mean a topological space with a topology defined on on which no separation axioms are assumed unless otherwise explicitly stated. For a given point in a space , the system of open neighborhoods of is denoted by . For a given subset of a space and are used to denote the closure of and interior of , respectively, with respect to the topology.

A nonempty collection of subsets of a set is said to be an ideal on , if it satisfies the following two conditions: (i) If and , then ; (ii) If and , then . An ideal topological space (or ideal space) means a topological space with an ideal defined on . Let be a topological space with an ideal defined on . Then for any subset of for every is called the local function of with respect to and . If there is no ambiguity, we will write or simply for . Also, defines a Kuratowski closure operator for the topology (or simply ) which is finer than . An ideal on a space is said to be codense ideal if and only if . is always a proper subset of . Also, if and only if the ideal is codense.

#### 2. -Perfect, -Perfect, and -Perfect Sets

In this section, we define three collections of subsets , and in an ideal space and study some of their properties.

*Definition 5. *Let be an ideal topological space. A subset of is said to be(i)-perfect if ,(ii)-perfect if ,(iii)-perfect if is both -perfect and -perfect. The collection of -perfect sets, -perfect sets, and -perfect sets in is denoted by , , and , respectively.

*Remark 6. *(i) If , then

(ii) If , then .

(iii) If , then (by Theorem 4(iv)).

*Remark 7. *Every *-perfect set is both -perfect and -perfect (and hence -perfect). In Proposition 15, we proved that every members of an ideal is both -perfect and -perfect (and hence -perfect). But any nonempty member of an ideal is not a *-perfect set. Hence -perfect and -perfect sets (and hence -perfect sets) need not be *-perfect.

Proposition 8. *If a subset of an ideal space is -perfect, then .*

*Proof. *Since is both -perfect and -perfect, and . By the finite additive property of ideals, . Hence .

Proposition 9. *In an ideal space , every -closed set is -perfect.*

*Proof. *Let be a -closed set. Therefore, . Hence . Therefore, is an -perfect set.

Corollary 10. *In an ideal space ,*(i)* and are -perfect sets,*(ii)*every -closed set is -perfect,*(iii)*for any subset of an ideal topological space are -perfect sets,*(iv)*every regular--closed set is -perfect.*

*Proof. *The proof follows from Proposition 9.

The following example shows that the converses of Proposition 9 and Corollary 10 are not true.

*Example 11. *Let be an ideal space with , , and . The set is -perfect set which is not a -closed set and hence not a regular--closed set.

Proposition 12. *If a subset of an ideal topological space is such that , then is -perfect.*

*Proof. *Since . Then and . Hence is both an -perfect and -perfect set.

Corollary 13. *Let be a subset of an ideal space . Consider the following.*(i)*If , then every subset of is a -perfect set.*(ii)*If is -perfect, then is -perfect.*(iii)*If is an -perfect set, then is a -perfect set.*(iv)*If is -perfect, then is a -perfect set.*

*Proof. *The proof follows from Proposition 12.

Corollary 14. *Let be a space with an ideal on such that . Then for every ,*(i)*if , then is -perfect;*(ii)* is -perfect;*(iii)*if contains nonempty subset with , then is -perfect.*

*Proof. *Follows from Theorem 4 and Proposition 12.

Proposition 15. *In an ideal space , every *-dense-in-itself set is an -perfect set.*

*Proof. *Let be a *-dense-in-itself set of . Then . Therefore, . Hence is an -perfect set.

Corollary 16. *In an ideal space ,*(i)*every -dense set is -perfect,*(ii)*every -open set is -perfect,*(iii)*every almost strong -I-open set is -perfect,*(iv)*every almost -open set is -perfect,*(v)*every regular--closed set is -perfect,*(vi)*every -set is -perfect.*

*Proof. *Since all the above sets are *-dense-in-itself, by Proposition 15, these sets are -perfect.

*Remark 17. *The members of the ideal of an ideal space are -perfect, but the nonempty members of the ideal are not *-dense-in-itself. Therefore, the converses of the above Corollary and Proposition 15 need not to be true.

Proposition 18. *In an ideal space ,*(i)*empty set is an* *-perfect set,*(ii) *is an* *-perfect set if the ideal is codense.*

*Proof. *(i) Since , the empty set is an -perfect set. (ii) We know that if and only if the ideal is codense. Then . Hence the result follows.

#### 3. Main Results
