The standard topological $n$-cube is the space $[0,1]^n$, where $[0,1]$ is the unit interval. In general, any closed $n$-cube is the topological product of closed intervals. The collection of topological cubes forms a topological cocubical set?.

There are also open $n$-cubes, which contain all points of the closed $n$-cube which are apart from the boundary. Open $n$-cubes are the topological product of open intervals. The standard topological open $n$-cube is the space $(0,1)^n$, where $(0,1)$ is the openunit interval.

The open $n$-cubes are the balls in $n$-dimensional Cartesian space $\mathrm{R}^n$ with respect to the metric derived from the supremum norm$\Vert x \Vert_\infty$ on $\mathrm{R}^n$.
