The terminology topologizing subcategory is (probably) coming from the related notion of a topologizing filter from the localization theory of rings.
The classes of topologizing subcategories, reflective topologizing subcategories and coreflective topologizing subcategories are closed under Gabriel multiplication defined on the class of full subcategories of . Given a (not necessarily unital) ring , any reflective topologizing subcategory of - is coreflective.
