A set-labeling of a graph $G$ is an injective function $f:V(G)\to \mathcal{P}(X)$, where $X$ is a finite set and a set-indexer of $G$ is a set-labeling such that the induced function $f^{\oplus}:E(G)\to \mathcal{P}(X)-\{\emptyset\}$ defined by $f^{\oplus}(uv) = f(u){\oplus}f(v)$ for every $uv{\in} E(G)$ is also injective. Let $G$ be a graph and let $X$ be a non-empty set. A set-indexer $f:V(G)\to \mathcal{P}(X)$ is called a topological set-labeling of $G$ if $f(V(G))$ is a topology of $X$. An integer additive set-labeling is an injective function $f:V(G)\to \mathcal{P}(\mathbb{N}_0)$, whose associated function $f^+:E(G)\to \mathcal{P}(\mathbb{N}_0)$ is defined by $f(uv)=f(u)+f(v), uv\in E(G)$, where $\mathbb{N}_0$ is the set of all non-negative integers and $\mathcal{P}(\mathbb{N}_0)$ is its power set. An integer additive set-indexer is an integer additive set-labeling such that the induced function $f^+:E(G) \to \mathcal{P}(\mathbb{N}_0)$ defined by $f^+ (uv) = f(u)+ f(v)$ is also injective. In this paper, we extend the concepts of topological set-labeling of graphs to topological integer additive set-labeling of graphs.
