This textbook in aspect set topology is aimed toward an upper-undergraduate viewers. Its light velocity might be necessary to scholars who're nonetheless studying to jot down proofs. necessities contain calculus and at the least one semester of research, the place the coed has been competently uncovered to the tips of simple set idea equivalent to subsets, unions, intersections, and services, in addition to convergence and different topological notions within the genuine line. Appendices are integrated to bridge the distance among this new fabric and fabric present in an research direction. Metric areas are one of many extra accepted topological areas utilized in different components and are accordingly brought within the first bankruptcy and emphasised in the course of the textual content. This additionally conforms to the procedure of the publication firstly the actual and paintings towards the extra normal. bankruptcy 2 defines and develops summary topological areas, with metric areas because the resource of concept, and with a spotlight on Hausdorff areas. the ultimate bankruptcy concentrates on non-stop real-valued capabilities, culminating in a improvement of paracompact spaces.

Note that the metric used for Rq in the Heine–Borel Theorem must be the standard one, or the result may fail even for an equivalent metric. For example, if we use the metric d(x, y) = |x − y|(1 + |x − y|)−1 on R, then all of R is closed and bounded but not compact. This furnishes another example of a closed and bounded set that is not compact. 10. If (X, d) is a compact metric space and f : X → (Z, ρ) is a continuous function, then f is uniformly continuous. Proof. Suppose f is not uniformly continuous.

It has a convergent subsequence {x2n : n ∈ N2 } with x2 = limn∈N2 x2n . Continue, and we get Nq ⊆ · · · ⊆ N1 ⊆ N and xk = limn∈Nk xkn for 1 ≤ k ≤ q. It follows that {xn : n ∈ Nq } is a subsequence of the original sequence and it converges to x = (x1 , . . , xq ); it must be that x ∈ K since K is closed. 5, K is compact. 9. For the metric space Q, if a, b ∈ Q, a < b, then the set F = {x ∈ Q : a ≤ x ≤ b} = Q ∩ [a, b] is closed and bounded but not compact. In fact, there is a sequence {xn } in F that converges to an irrational number, and so this sequence has no subsequence that converges to a point of F .

2) that for n, m ≥ N , d(xn , xm ) < 2N −1 , and so {xn } is a Cauchy sequence. Since X is complete, there is an x in X such that xn → x. 2) reveals that when n > m > N , x ∈ cl B(xn ; rn ) ⊆ B(xm ; rm ) ⊆ G ∩ UN . ∞ Since N was arbitrary, x ∈ G ∩ N =1 UN . Thus, this last set is nonempty, and so we have established density. The next result is the form of the theorem that is used very often and is also referred to as the Baire Category Theorem. 3. If (X, d) is a complete metric space and {Fn } is a sequence ∞ of closed subsets such that X = n=1 Fn , then there is an n such that we have int Fn = ∅.
