1 Point-Set Topology 1.1 Sufficient Conditions The following are sufficient conditions to guarantee each property. Normal. X is metrizable. X is compact Hausdorff. X is regular and 2 nd countable. X is regular and Lindel¨ of. Regular. X is a subspace of a regular space. X is a product of regular spaces. Metrizable. X is regular and 2 nd countable. (Urysohn Metrization Theorem) ( X is not metrizable if f ( x n ) f ( x ), but x n 9 x where f is continuous.) Compact. X is metrizable and (limit point compact or sequentially compact). X is the product of compact spaces. X is a closed subspace of a compact space. X is the continuous image of a compact space. 1 st Countable. X is metrizable. X is a subspace of a 1 st countable space. X is a countable product of 1 st countable spaces. 2 nd Countable. X is a subspace of a 2 nd countable space. X is a countable product of 2 nd countable spaces. 1.2 Theorems Sequence Lemma. Let X be a topological space; let A X . If there is a sequence of points of A converging to x , then x A ; the converse holds if X is 1 St countable (or metrizable). Intermediate Value Theorem. Let f : X Y be a continuous map, where X is a connected space and Y is an ordered set in the order topology. If a and b are two points of X and if r is a point of Y lying between f ( a ) and f ( b ), then there exists a point c of X such that f ( c ) = r . Extreme Value Theorem. Let f : X Y be continuous, where Y is an ordered set in the order topology. If X is compact, then there exist points c and d in X such that f ( c ) f ( x ) f ( d ) for every x X . Lebesgue Number Lemma. Let A be an open covering of the metric space ( X, d ). If X is compact, there is a δ > 0 such that for each subset of X having a diameter less than δ , there exists an element of A containing it. Urysohn Lemma. Let X be a normal space; let A and B be disjoint closed subsets of X . Let [ a, b ] be a closed interval in the real line. Then there exists a continuous map f : X [ a, b ] such that f ( x ) = a for every x in A , and f ( x ) = b for every x in B . Urysohn Metrization Theorem. Every regular space X with a countable basis is metrizable. Tietze Extension Theorem. Let X be a normal space; let A be a closed subspace of X . 1. Any continuous map of A into the closed interval [ a, b ] of may be extended to a continuous map of all of X into [ a, b ]. 2. Any continuous map of A into may be extended to a continuous map of all of X into . 1

2 Homotopy Theory and Fundamental Groups 2.1 Essential Theorems Criterion for Homotopy Equivalence of CW-complexes. If ( X, A ) is a CW pair consisting of a CW complex X and a contractible subcomplex A , then the quotient map X X/A is a homotopy equivalence. Brouwer Fixed Point Theorem. Every continuous map f : D 2 D 2 has a fixed point ( f ( x ) = x ).

    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.
