Examples of sets which are open, closed, both, and neither. Theorem: The union of any collection of open sets is open, and the intersection of a finite collection of open sets is open. Example to show that the arbitrary union of open sets is not necessarily open. Definition: limit point, isolated point, closure of a set. Definition: open cover, compact. Heine-Borel theorem: A subset S ⊆ R is compact iff it’s closed and bounded. Bolzano-Weierstrass theorem: If a bounded subset S of R contains infinitely many distinct points, then there exists at least one point in R that is an limit point of S . Definition: metric, metric space. Definition: Euclidean space Rn . Examples: Euclidean metric, sup metric, and taxi-cab metric on Rn , discrete metric. Theorem: Let (X, d) be a metric space. Any neighborhood of a point in X is an open set. Definition: bounded subset of a metric space. Theorem: Let T be a compact subset of (X, d). Then T is closed and bounded, and every infinite subset of T has a limit point in T . Definition: sequences and convergence in metric spaces, complete metric space. 1 ...
