What is Isolated point?

In mathematics, a point x is called an isolated point of a subset S (in a topological space X) if x is an element of S but there exists a neighborhood of x which does not contain any other points of S. This is equivalent to saying that the singleton {x} is an open set in the topological space S (considered as a subspace of X). If the space X is a Euclidean space (or any other metric space), then x is an isolated point of S if there exists an open ball around x which contains no other points of S. (Introducing the notion of sequences and limits, one can say equivalently that an element x of S is an isolated point of S if and only if it is not a limit point of S.)
