indiscrete space

A topological space in which only the empty set and the entire space are open.

Any function from a topological space to an anti-discrete space is continuous.


Other frequently occurring names for this topological space are indiscrete space and trivial topological space, although the latter term can also refer specifically to a space with only one point.
