Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm starting to read an introduction to topology book.

In the chapter about the topology of the product space (product of topological spaces), it says: "It should be clearly understood that an unrestricted product of open sets in the coordinate spaces need not be open in the product topology".

Can anybody please give me an example of this?

Thank you
