725 Assignments (Fall 2012)

  1. p.38 #19 -- "get-acquainted special"

  2. p.40 #2.(b)

  3. p.41 #5

  4. p.136 #4

  5. Fourth Ex on p.3 of the Nets and Filters handout.

  6. Third Ex on p.4 of the Nets and Filters handout.

    BONUS  Discuss the composition of associations (or derivations): filter to nets to filters, and net to filter to nets.

  7. Ex on p.6 of the Nets and Filters handout.

  8. p.137 #7 and p.138 #8 as modified

  9. Refer to p.141 #9.
    1. Give an example to show that must be Hausdorff for the claim to hold.
    2. Prove the modified claim.
    3. Prove or construct a counterexample: if the graph is closed, the function is continuous.

    BONUS  Determine when a closed graph implies continuity.

  10. p.142 #19

  11. p.170 #20

  12. A topological space is said to be locally Euclidean if and only if every point in has a neighborhood homeomorphic to an open set in some Euclidean space.
    1. Check each separation axiom (= 0,1,2,3,4,5) for a locally Euclidean space.
    2. Prove the line with two origins is locally Euclidean.

    BONUS  Prove the long line is locally Euclidean.

  13. Express the line with two origins as a quotient space of the disjoint union of two copies of the Euclidean line. (Be sure to verify that the topology is correct!)

  14. By identifying opposite edges of a rectangle (or square), one obtains three spaces. One is the torus; determine the other two.

  15. Is a locally Euclidean space first countable? Second countable? Separable?

  16. p.170 #23

  17. Express the real projective plane as D² attached to S¹.

  18. p.174 #6

  19. p.192 #5

  20. p.193 #17

  21. p.194 #10

  22. p.195 #5

  23. p.196 #7

  24. Determine whether (a) the line with two origins and (b) Sierpinski space are path-connected by arguing directly from the definition in each case. If not path-connected, determine the path-components.

  25. A compact subset of a Hausdorff space is closed, and a closed subset of a compact space is compact. Show that neither holds conversely.
