Let E and F be two compact subsets of the real numbers R with the standard (Euclidian) metric d ( x, y ) = | x y | . Show that the Cartesian product E × F = { ( x, y ) | x E and y F } is a compact subset of R 2 with the metric d 2 ( �u,�v ) = �u �v 2 . (Recall that the norm � · � 2 is defined by ( x, y ) 2 = ( x 2 + y 2 ) 1 / 2 . ) 2 . Problem # 12 page 44 in Rudin . 3 . Problem # 14 page 44 in Rudin . 4 . Problem # 16 page 44 in Rudin . 5 .

Unformatted text preview: < ± that contains ∩ the Cantor set C = n N E n (defined in Rudin 2.44). [ Hint : C ² E n , and each of the 2 n intervals in E n is contained in an open interval of length (1 + ± ) / 3 n ]. (b) Show that the Cantor set C ² R is compact. (not for credit) Show that the Cantor set is uncountable – either by fixing the proof of Rudin 2.43, or by using another (e.g. diagonal) argument.

    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.
