    • n bos A genus of hollow-horned ruminants, having simple horns in both sexes, typical of the family Bovidæ and subfamily Bovinæ, containing the oxen, or cattle. Its limits vary; it is now commonly restricted to the B. taurus, the domestic ox, bull, or cow, and closely related species. Formerly it was about equivalent to the subfamily Bovinæ, as that term is now used. See cut under ox.

We write Bos(X ) and Bas(X ) for the algebras generated by open or cozero sets in X, respectively. A set A ⊂ X is resolvable (or an H -set ) if for any nonempty B ⊂ X (equivalently, for any nonempty closed B ⊂ X ) there exists a relatively open U ⊂ B such that either U ⊂ A or U ∩ A =
