Math508, Fall 2010 Jerry L. Kazdan Problem Set 6 DUE: Thurs. Oct. 28, 2010. Late papers will be accepted until 1:00 PM Friday . 1. Give examples of the following: a) An open cover of { x R : 0 < x 1 } that has no finite sub-cover. b) A metric space having a bounded infinite sequence with no convergent subsequence. c) A metric space that is not complete. 2. Let K be a compact set in a metric space M and let p M be a point not in K . Define the distance dist ( p , K ) between p and K as dist ( p , K ) = inf x K d ( p , x ) . a) Show there is at least one point q K that has this minimum distance, so d ( p , q ) = dist ( p , K ) b) Is there a unique such point q ? Proof or counterexample. c) Is the assertion in part a) still true if you only assume that K is a closed (but not compact) subset of R 2 ? Proof or counterexample. 3. For any two sets S , T in a metric space, define the distance between these sets as dist ( S , T ) = inf x S , y T d ( x , y ) . Assume both
