Look at the example in Willard concerning
the diagonal uniformities. And then look
at the definition for neighborhoods in a
uniformity in the previous sections.

Then for cl(A) one has

x near A implies that for every
entourage (surrounding) D there exists
some t in S such that

(x,t) implies t in D[{x}]

and

(y,t) implies t in D[A]

So, D[A] fixes the values of t
that determine whether any given
x is near.

So, this should mean that

D[A] = D[cl(A)]

so

cl(A) = cl(cl(A))

Anyway, its late. Maybe I screwed this up.

But, it should give you a different way to
