A General Topology Workbook by Iain T. Adamson

This ebook has been referred to as a Workbook to make it transparent from the beginning that it's not a standard textbook. traditional textbooks continue by way of giving in every one part or bankruptcy first the definitions of the phrases for use, the techniques they're to paintings with, then a few theorems regarding those phrases (complete with proofs) and eventually a few examples and routines to check the readers' knowing of the definitions and the theorems. Readers of this e-book will certainly locate all of the traditional constituents--definitions, theorems, proofs, examples and workouts­ yet no longer within the traditional association. within the first a part of the ebook could be came across a brief overview of the elemental definitions of common topology interspersed with a wide num­ ber of routines, a few of that are additionally defined as theorems. (The use of the note Theorem isn't really meant as a sign of hassle yet of significance and value. ) The workouts are intentionally now not "graded"-after all of the difficulties we meet in mathematical "real existence" don't are available order of hassle; a few of them are extremely simple illustrative examples; others are within the nature of educational difficulties for a conven­ tional direction, whereas others are particularly tricky effects. No options of the routines, no proofs of the theorems are incorporated within the first a part of the book-this is a Workbook and readers are invited to aim their hand at fixing the issues and proving the theorems for themselves.

For if F is not locally connected, then it contains a continuum of convergence K = lim (K ), where Km K = 0, m n, and for some 8e for every n. Now since M is locally connected e > 0 we have and thus has property S, we have M = >i M,, where each M, is a locally connected continuum of diameter less than e. Now each K,, must meet each set of some pair A, B of sets (M,) which have no common points (A-B = 0). Since there are only a finite number of disjoint pairs A, B in (M,), it follows that for some such pair A, B of sets M; there exist three of the sets (K,,), say K1, K2, K3, each of which meets both A and B.

EX. , if x, y e X, then p(x, y) = p(xl, y1) where xi = (x x x ) a X, y' = (y, y, y, .. ') a X. Furthermore, X is dense in X, that is, any point of is a point or a limit point of X or, in the space k, we have l = X. For clearly if x = (x1, x2, ) e X where xi a X, we have x = Jim x{ where x{ = (xa xt, ' ' -) e k, because p(x, x;) = lim, p(xn, xj) and for n and i sufficiently large p(x,,, x,) is arbitrarily small by the Cauchy condition. Finally, the apace X is complete. For let x1, x2, x3, be a funda- mental sequence in I where x = (x" j), x7 e X and where 6(1x) < 11n.

Then L + a1a + ab + bbl = S is a semi-polygon lying in G + J + ab. If H and K are the two components of ,r - S, then because S contains points of both G and ab. Thus if 00 there were a second component G1 of we would have 0. Accordingly is connected and our theorem is proven. DzFIxrrioR. By a 0-curve will be meant a continuum which is the sum of three simple arcs axb, ayb, azb intersecting by pairs in just their end points. 4) A 0-curve separates the plane 7r into just three regions. Proof. Let 0 = axb + ayb + azb, axb + ayb - J1, axb + azb = J2, and ayb + azb = J3.
