Unformatted text preview: ance is a metric on K(R2 ), the set of all compact subsets of the plane (Prop. 2.2.1). 2. Show T is an h-contraction if each Ti is a d-contraction (Prop. 2.3.2). 3. Given an IFS T , show there is a unique compact set A for which T (A) = A (Theorem 2.3.1(a)). 4. For any compact set B , T n (B ) → A as n → ∞, in the sense that limn→∞ h(T n (B ), A) = 0 (Theorem 2.3.1(b)). The first step, the step we take in this section, is showing h is a metric. The remaining steps are in Sect. 2.3. Despite the brevity of the proofs in this section, here we begin a method of presenting arguments that we follow for the rest of this text. To make more transparent the logical flow of arguments, we present statements of lemmas, propositions, theorems, and corollaries, together with their connective material first, then all the proofs afterward, just before the practice problems. This ordering violates several millenia of mathematica practice; it was inspired by experience writing webpages, where each lemma, etc., is...
