1.INTRODUCTION

Ganster and Reily  discussed Lc continuous functions. Dontchev  had given contra continuous functions. Lellis Thivagar  introduced a nano topological space with respect to a subset X of an universe which is defined in terms of lower and upper approximations of X. The elements of a nano topological space are called nano open sets. Nano is a Greek word which means very small. The topology studied here is given the name nano topology as it has at most five elements Certain weak forms of

nano sets were studied by various authors. Here we study a new form of closed functions called Ns closed function and its relation to various other closed functions. Also we analyze a new form of contra continuous function namely, Ns contra

continuous function and its relation to other contra continuous functions.

2. PRELIMINARIES

Definition 2.1:  Let be a non-empty finite set of objects called the universe and R be an equivalence relation on named as the indiscernibility relation. Elements belonging to the same equivalence class are said to be indiscernible with one another. The

pair (, ) is said to be the approximation space. Let X .

1. The lower approximation of X with respect to R is the set of all objects, which can be for certain classified as

X with respect to R and it is denoted by (). That is, () =

{(): () }, where R(x) denotes

the equivalence class determined by .

2. The upper approximation of X with respect to R is the set of all objects, which can be possibly classified as X

with respect to R and it is denoted by () . That is, ()=

{(): () }.

3. The boundary region of X with respect to R is the set of all objects, which can be classified neither as X nor

as not-X with respect to R and it is denoted by (). That is ()=() ().

Definition 2.2: let be the universe, R be an equivalence relation on and (X)= { , , (), (), ()}, where X

. (X) satisfies the following axioms. (i) and ().

1. The union of the elements of any subcollection of (X) is in (X).

2. The intersection of the elements of any finite subcollection of X) is in (X).

That is, (X) forms a topology on called as the nano topology on with respect to X. we call (, (X)) as the nano topological space. The elements of (X) are called as nano-open sets. A set A is said to be nano closed if its complement is nano-open.

Definition 2.3:  If (, (X)) is a nano topological space with respect to X where X and if A , then the nano interior

of A is defined as the union of all nano-open subsets of A and it is denoted by Nint(A). That is, Nint(A) is the largest nano-open

subset of A. The nano closure of A is defined as the intersection of all nano closed sets containing A and it is denoted by Ncl(A). That is, Ncl(A) is the smallest nano closed set containing A.

Definition 2.4: A nano subset A of a nano topological space (, (X)) is called a

For a nano subset A of (, (X)) the intersection of all nano pre closed (nano semi closed, nano closed, nano semi pre closed) sets of (, (X)) containing A is called nano pre closure of A (nano semi closure of A, nano closure of A, nano semi pre closure of A) and is denoted by Npcl(A) (Nscl(A), Ncl(A), Nspcl(A)).

Definition 2.5: A nano subset A of a nono topological space (, (X)) is called a

11. Nano closed (briefly N closed) if Ncl(A) whenever A and U is Ng open in .

12. Nano closed (briefly N closed) if Ncl(A) whenever A and U is Ng open in .

The complements of the above mentioned nano closed sets are respective nano open sets.

( , (Z)) is N s closed.

Proof: obvious.

Theorem:3.20 A map f: (, (X)) (, (Y)) is N s closed if and only if for each nano subset S of and each nano open set U of such that 1() U, there is Ns open subset V of such that SV and 1(V) U.

V= f ( ) is Ns open in .

1(V)= -1(f ( )) – ( )=U Conversely, let F be nano closed in .

1(f ()) and is nano open in .

By assumption, there exists a Ns open subset V of such that f () and

1. f is Ns open map.

2. f is Ns closed map. Proof: (1)(2)

Let U be nano open in . (1)1(U) is Ns open in . That is f(U) is Ns open in .

(2)(3)

Let F be a nano closed set of . Then is open in . By assumption, f () is Ns open in .

f () = f () is Ns closed open in . f(F) is Ns closed in . (3)(1)

Let F be nano closed in . f(F) is Ns closed in . f(F)= (1)1(F) is Ns closed in .

2. For every nano closed set F of , 1(F) is Ns open in .

1. For each x and each nano closed set F of containing f(x), there exists Ns open set U containing x such that f(U)

.

2. For each x and each nano open set V of not containing f(x), there exists Ns closed set K not containing x such that 1(V) .

Proof: (1)(2)

Let F be nano closed in . Then is nano open in . By (1) 1( F) = 1(F) is Ns closed in . So, 1(F)

is Ns open. Hence (2) holds. (2)(1)

Let G be nano open in . Then is nano closed in . By (2) 1( G) = 1(G) is Ns open in . So, 1(G) is closed in . Hence (1) holds.

(2)(3)

Let F be nano closed in containing f(x). Hence x 1(F). By (2), 1(F) is Ns open in . Let U=1(F). This implies U is Ns open in containing x and f(U)=F . So (3) holds.

(3)(2)

Let F be a nano closed set of containing f(x). So, x 1(F). By (3), there exists Ns open set of containing x such that f () . So, 1(F) = {: 1(F)}. This is a union of Ns open sets, hence it is Ns open. Hence (2) holds. (3)(4)

Let V be nano open in not containing f(x). Then is closed in containing f(x). By (3), there exists Ns open set U in

containing x such that f(U) V. This implies U 1( V) = 1(). Hence1() -U. Let K= -U, K is

Ns closed in not containing x such that 1() . Hence (4) holds. (4)(3)

Let F be nano closed in containing f(x). Then is nano open in not containing f(x). From (4), there exists Ns closed set K in not containing x such that 1( F) .

This implies 1() . Hence 1(). That is, f ( ) . Let U= . Then U is Ns open in

containing x such that f(U) . So (3) holds.

1. If f is almost Ns contra continuous and g is a nano R map then g o f is almost Ns contra continuous.

2. If f is almost Ns contra continuous and g is nano perfectly continuous, then g o f is almost Ns contra continuous and almost Ns continuous.

Proof: (1) obvious

(2) Let V be nano regular open in . 1() is nano clopen in and hence nano regular open and nano regular closed.

1(1()) = ( )1() is Ns open and Ns closed in as f is almost Ns contra continuous. So, g o f is almost contra Ns continuous and almost Ns continuous.

Definition:4.24 A nano topological space (, (X)) is called Ns space if every Ns open set is nano open.

Theorem:4.25 Let f: (, (X)) (, (Y)) be a N s contra continuous map and g: (, (Y)) (, (Z)) be N s continuous. If is a Ns space, then g o f: is an almost Ns contra continuous map.

. 1(1()) = ( )1() is Ns closed in . Hence g o f is almost Ns contra continuous map.

Theorem:4.27 If f: (, (X)) (, (Y)) is surjective strongly N s nano open (strongly N s closed) map and g: (, (Y))

(, (Z)) is a map such that g o f: is an almost N s nano contra continuous, then g is almost N s contra

continuous.

Proof: Let V be any regular closed (nano regular open) set in . As g o f is almost Ns contra continuous, ( )1() =

1(1()) is Ns open (Ns closed) in . Since f is surjective and strongly Ns open (nano strongly Ns closed), f (1(1()))= 1() is Ns open (Ns closed) in . Hence g is almost Ns contra continuous.

Theorem:4.29 If a map f: (, (X)) (, (Y)) is N s contra continuous, then f is weekly N s continuous map.

Proof: Let x and V be an open set in containing f(x). Ncl(V) is closed in containing f(x). Since f is Ns contra continuous, 1(Ncl(V)) is Ns open in . Let U=1(Ncl(V)). f(U)=f(1(Ncl(V))) Ncl(V). So, f is weakly Ns

continuous.

Definition:4.30 A space is called locally Ns indiscrete if every Ns open set is nano closed in .

Theorem:4.31 If a map f: (, (X)) (, (Y)) is almost N s contra continuous and is locally N s indiscrete, then f

is almost nano continuous.

. So, 1() is Ns open in . Hence f is almost Ns continuous.

Definition: 5.21 A nano topological space (, (X)) is said to be Ns Hausdorff if and only if x and y are distinct points of

, there exists disjoint Ns open sets U and V containing x and y respectively.

Theorem:5.22 Let (, (X)) be a topological space and let (, (Y)) be a nano Hausdorff space. If f: (, (X)) (, (Y)) is injective and Ns continuous, then is a Ns Hausdorff space.

Proof: Let x and y be distinct points of . Since f is injective f(x) and f(y) are distinct points of . As is nano Hausdorff, there

exists disjoint nano open sets U and V containing f(x) and f(y) respectively.

Since f is Ns continuous and U and V are disjoint, 1() and, 1() are disjoint Ns open sets. So is Ns

Hausdorff.

Following the same lines, we can prove the following.

Theorem:5.23 Let (, (X)) be a nano topological space and let be Ns Hausdorff. If f: (, (X)) (, (Y)) is injective and Ns irresolute, then is Ns Hausdorff.
