In [[general topology]], the '''Baire category theorem''' states that a non-[[empty set|empty]] [[complete metric space]] is a [[second category space]]: that is, it is not a [[countability|countable]] [[union]] of [[nowhere dense set]]s (sets whose [[closure (topology)|closure]] have empty [[interior (topology)|interior]]).
