Topology: More on Compact Spaces
In the previous article, we defined compact spaces as those where every open cover has a finite subcover, i.e. if then we can find a finite set of indices such that On an intuitive level, one should imagine a compact … Continue reading
Topology: Subspaces
First, suppose (X, d) is a metric space. If Y is a subset of X, then one can restrict the metric to , i.e. for any , we set d’(y, y’) := d(y, y’). It’s not hard to show that the resulting function is a metric on Y. … Continue reading

Topology: Bases and Subbases
Bases Recall that though a subring or ideal of a ring may be rather huge, it often suffices to specify just a few elements which will generate the subring or ideal. Likewise, in a topology, one can specify a few … Continue reading
