A new type of cluster sets, called S-cluster sets, of functions and multifunctions between topological spaces is introduced, thereby providing a new technique for studying S-closed spaces. The deliberation includes an explicit expression of S-cluster set of a function. As an application, characterizations of Hausdorff and S-closed topological spaces are achieved via such cluster sets.
