Homework 3 ector Guillermo Cu´ ellar R´ ıos February 9, 2006 13.9 Prove the folowing. (a) An accumulation point of a set S is either an interior point of S or a boundary point of S . Proof. Suppose that an accumulation point x of a set S is neither an interior point of S nor a boundary point of S , then x is an interior point of R \ S , thus there is a neighborhood N of x such that N R \ S it follow that N S = and N * S = but this is contradicts the definition of an accumulation point. (b) A boundary point of a set S is either an accumulation point of S or an isolated point of S . Proof. Lets consider several cases: Case 1: The boundary point x S . Now we consider two subcases: Subcase a: There is a deleted neighborhood N * of x such that N * S = then by definition 13.14 x is an isolated point. Subcase b: For every deleted neighborhood N * of x, N * S = then by definition 13.14 x is an accumulation point. Case 2: The boundary point x S . By definition 13.3 we know that for every neighborhood N of x , N S = . Since we know that x S it follows that for every deleted neighborhood N * of x , N * S = thus by definition 13.14 x is an accumulation point of S .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
