Suppose f : X Y , x X, and y = f (x). We say that f is continuous at x if for every neighborhood V of y, there is a neighborhood U of x with f (U ) V . We then say that a function f is continuous if it is continuous at every x X. A homeomorphism from a topological space X to a topological space Y is a 1-1, onto, continuous function f : X Y whose inverse is also continous. 6 A topological space is called separable if there is a countable collection of open sets such that every open set in T can be written as a union of members of the countable collection. A topological space X is called Hausdorff if for every x, y X with x = y, there are neighborhoods U and V of x and y (respectively) with U V = . This is just the barest beginnings of Topology, but it should be enough to get us off the ground . . . 7 Exercises: Topological spaces 1. Show that the intersection of a finite numb...
