*Hausdorff operation*

A set-theoretic operation, the result of its application to a sequence $(E_n)$ of sets can be noted thus:

$$\Phi(E_n)=\bigcup_{z\in N}\bigcap_{n\in z}E_n,$$

where $N$ is a system of sets of positive integers, called the base of the $\delta$-$\sigma$-operation. See Descriptive set theory.
