# About:Lusin's separation theorem

An Entity of Type: WikicatTheoremsInTopology, from Named Graph: http://dbpedia.org, within Data Space: dbpedia.org

In descriptive set theory and mathematical logic, Lusin's separation theorem states that if A and B are disjoint analytic subsets of Polish space, then there is a Borel set C in the space such that A ⊆ C and B ∩ C = ∅. It is named after Nikolai Luzin, who proved it in 1927. The theorem can be generalized to show that for each sequence (An) of disjoint analytic sets there is a sequence (Bn) of disjoint Borel sets such that An ⊆ Bn for each n. An immediate consequence is Suslin's theorem, which states that if a set and its complement are both analytic, then the set is Borel.
