\(\alpha_\beta\)-Connectedness as a characterization of connectedness
In this paper, a new class of \(\alpha_\beta\)-open sets in a topological space \(X\) is introduced which forms a topology on \(X\). The connectedness of this new topology on \(X\), called \(\alpha_\beta\)-connectedness, turns out to be equivalent to connectedness of \(X\) and hence also to \(\alpha\)-connectedness of \(X\). The \(\alpha_\beta\)-continuous and \(\alpha_\beta\)-irresolute mappings are defined and their relationship with other mappings such as continuous mappings and \(\alpha\)-continuous mappings are discussed. An intermediate value theorem is obtained. The hyperconnected spaces constitute a subclass of \(\alpha_\beta\)-connected spaces.
