  1. interior

    In the context of geometry and topology, the interior of a shape or a set is the set of all points that lie strictly within the boundary of that shape. This means that any point in the interior doesn't belong to the boundary itself. It typically refers to the largest open set that is entirely contained within the shape or set. In a broader, non-mathematical context, the term "interior" can refer to the inside or inner part of something, such as a building, a country (in context to its borders) or a vehicle.

  1. Interior

    In mathematics, specifically in topology, the interior of a set S of points of a topological space consists of all points of S that do not belong to the boundary of S. A point that is in the interior of S is an interior point of S. Equivalently the interior of S is the complement of the closure of the complement of S. In this sense interior and closure are dual notions. The exterior of a set is the interior of its complement, equivalently the complement of its closure; it consists of the points that are in neither the set nor its boundary. The interior, boundary, and exterior of a subset together partition the whole space into three blocks. The interior and exterior are always open while the boundary is always closed. Sets with empty interior have been called boundary sets.
