1 Geometry 2: Remedial topology Rules: You may choose to solve only hard exercises (marked with!, * and **) or ordinary ones (marked with! or unmarked), or both, if you want to have extra problems. To have a perfect score, a student must obtain (in average) a score of 10 points per week. It s up to you to ignore handouts entirely, because passing tests in class and having good scores at final exams could compensate (at least, partially) for the points obtained by grading handouts. Solutions for the problems are to be explained to the examiners orally in the class and marked in the score sheet. It s better to have a written version of your solution with you. It s OK to share your solutions with other students, and use books, Google search and Wikipedia, we encourage it. The first score sheet will be distributed February 11-th. If you have got credit for 2/3 of ordinary problems or 2/3 of hard problems, you receive 6t points, where t is a number depending on the date when it is done. Passing all hard or all ordinary problems (except at most 2) brings you 10t points. Solving of ** (extra hard) problems is not obligatory, but each such problem gives you a credit for 2 * or! problems in the hard set. The first 3 weeks after giving a handout, t = 1.5, between 21 and 35 days, t = 1, and afterwards, t = 0.7. The scores are not cumulative, only the best score for each handout counts. Please keep your score sheets until the final evaluation is given. 2.1 Topological spaces Definition 2.1. A set of all subsets of M is denoted 2 M. Topology on M is a collection of subsets S 2 M called open subsets, and satisfying the following conditions. 1. Empty set and M are open 2. A union of any number of open sets is open 3. An intersection of a finite number of open subsets is closed. A complement of an open set is called closed. A set with topology on it is called a topological space. An open neighbourhood of a point is an open set containing this point. Definition 2.2. A map φ : M M of topological spaces is called continuous if a preimage of each open set U M is open in M. A bijective continuous map is called a homeomorphism if its inverse is also continuos. Exercise 2.1. Let M be a set, and S a set of all subsets of M. Prove that S defines topology on M. This topology is called discrete. Describe the set of all continuous maps from M to a given topological space. Exercise 2.2. Let M be a set, and S 2 M a set of two subsets: empty set and M. Prove that S defines topology on M. This topology is called codiscrete. Describe the set of all continuous maps from M to a space with discrete topology. Issued Handout 2, version 1.4.1,

2 Definition 2.3. Let M be a topological space, and Z M its subset. Open subsets of Z are subsets obtained as Z U, where U is open in M. This topology is called induced topology. Definition 2.4. A metric space is a set M equipped with a distance function d : M M R 0 satisfying the following axioms. 1. d(x, y) = 0 iff x = y. 2. d(x, y) = d(y, x). 3. (triangle inequality) d(x, y) + d(y, z) d(x, z). An open ball of radius r with center in x is {y M d(x, y) < r}. Definition 2.5. Let M be a metric space. A subset U M is called open if it is obtained as a union of open balls. This topology is called induced by the metric. Definition 2.6. A topological space is called metrizable if its topology can be induced by a metric. Exercise 2.3. Show that discrete topology can be induced by a metric, and codiscrete cannot. Exercise 2.4. Prove that an intersection of any collection of closed subsets of a topological space is closed. Definition 2.7. An intersection of all closed supersets of Z M is called closure of Z. Definition 2.8. A limit point of a set Z M is a point x M such that any neighbourhood of M contains a point of Z other than x. A limit of a sequence {x i } of points in M is a point x M such that any neighbourhood of x M contains all x i for all i except a finite number. A sequence which has a limit is called convergent. Exercise 2.5. Show that a closure of a set Z M is a union of Z and all its limit points. Exercise 2.6. Let f : M M be a continuous map of topological spaces. Prove that f(lim i x i ) = lim i f(x i ) for any convergent sequence {x i M}. Issued Handout 2, version 1.4.1,

3 Exercise 2.7. Let f : M M be a map of metrizable topological spaces, such that f(lim i x i ) = lim i f(x i ) for any convergent sequence {x i M}. Prove that f is continuous. Exercise 2.8 (*). Find a counterexample to the previous problem for nonmetrizable, Hausdorff topological spaces. Exercise 2.9 (**). Let f : M M be a map of countable topological spaces, such that f(lim i x i ) = f(lim i x i ) for any convergent sequence {x i M}. Prove that f is continuous, or find a counterexample. Exercise 2.10 (*). Let f : M N be a bijective map inducing homeomorphisms on all countable subsets of M. Show that it is a homeomorphism, or find a counterexample. 2.2 Hausdorff spaces Definition 2.9. Let M be a topological space. It is called Hausdorff, or separable, if any two distinct points x y M can be separated by open subsets, that is, there exist open neighbourhoods U x and V y such that U V =. Remark 2.1. In topology, the Hausdorff axiom is usually assumed by default. In subsequent handouts, it will be always assumed (unless stated otherwise). Exercise Prove that any subspace of a Hausdorff space with induced topology is Hausdorff. Exercise Let M be a Hausdorff topological space. points in M are closed subsets. Prove that all Exercise Let M be a topological space, with all points of M closed. Prove that M is Hausdorff, or find a counterexample. Exercise Count the number of non-isomorphic topologies on a finite set of 4 elements. How many of these topologies are Hausdorff? Exercise 2.15 (!). Let Z 1, Z 2 be non-intersecting closed subsets of a metrizable space M. Find open subsets U Z 1, V Z 2 which do not intersect. Issued Handout 2, version 1.4.1,

4 Definition Let M, N be topological spaces. Product topology is a topology on M N, with open sets obtained as a union of U V, where U is open in M and V is open in N. Exercise Prove that a topology on X is Hausdorff if and only if the diagonal {(x, y) X X x = y} is closed in the product topology. Definition Let be an equivalence relation on a topological space M. Factor-topology (or quotient topology) is a topology on the set M/ of equivalence classes such that a subset U M/ is open whenever its preimage in M is open. Exercise Let G be a finite group acting on a Hausdorff topological space M. 1 Prove that the quotient map is closed. 2 Exercise 2.18 (*). Let be an equivalence relation on a topological space M, and Γ M M its graph, that is, the set {(x, y) M M x y}. Suppose that the map M M/ is open, and the Γ is closed in M M. Show that M/ is Hausdorff. Hint. Prove that diagonal is closed in M M. Exercise 2.19 (!). Let G be a finite group acting on a Hausdorff topological space M. Prove that M/G with the quotient topology is Hausdorff. Hint. Use the previous exercise. Exercise 2.20 (**). Let M = R, and an equivalence relation with at most 2 elements in each equivalence class. Prove that R/ is Hausdorff, or find a counterexample. Exercise 2.21 (*). ( gluing of closed subsets ) Let M be a metrizable topological space, and Z i M a finite number closed subsets which do not intersect, grouped into pairs of homeomorphic Z i Z i. Let an equivalence relation generated by these homeomorphisms. Show that M/ is Hausdorff. 1 Speaking of a group acting on a topological space, one always means continuous action. 2 a closed map is a map which puts closed subsets to closed subsets. Issued Handout 2, version 1.4.1,

5 2.3 Compact spaces Definition A cover of a topological space M is a collection of open subsets {U α 2 M } such that U α = M. A subcover of a cover {U α } is a subset {U β } {U α }. A topological space is called compact if any cover of this space has a finite subcover. Exercise Let M be a compact topological space, and Z M a closed subset. Show that Z is also compact. Exercise Let M be a countable, metrizable topological space. Show that either M contains a converging sequence of pairwise different elements, or M contains a subset with discrete topology. Definition A topological space is called sequentially compact if any sequence {z i } of points of M has a converging subsequence. Exercise Let M be metrizable a compact topological space. Show that M is sequentially compact. Hint. Use the previous exercise. Remark 2.2. Heine-Borel theorem says that the converse is also true: any metric space which is sequentially compact, is also compact. Its proof is moderately difficult (please check Wikipedia or any textbook on pointset topology, metric geometry or analysis; Metric geometry by Burago- Burago-Ivanov is probably the best place). In subsequent handouts, you are allowed to use this theorem without a proof. Exercise 2.25 (*). Construct an example of a Hausdorff topological space which is sequentially compact, but not compact. Exercise 2.26 (*). Construct an example of a Hausdorff topological space which is compact, but not sequentially compact. Definition A topological group is a topological space with group operations G G G, x, y xy and G G, x x 1 which are continuous. In a similar way, one defines topological vector spaces, topological rings and so on. Issued Handout 2, version 1.4.1,

6 Exercise 2.27 (*). Let G be a compact topological group, acting on a topological space M in such a way that the map M G M is continuous. Prove that the quotient space is Hausdorff. Exercise Let f : X Y be a continuous map of topological spaces, with X compact. Prove that f(x) is also compact. Exercise Let Z Y be a compact subset of a Hausdorff topological space. Prove that it is closed. Exercise Let f : X Y be a continuous, bijective map of topological spaces, with X compact and Y Hausdorff. Prove that it is a homeomorphism. Definition A topological space M is called pseudocompact if any continuous function f : M R is bounded. Exercise Prove that any compact topological space is pseudocompact. Hint. Use the previous exercise. Exercise Show that for any continuous function f : M R on a compact space there exists x M such that f(x) = sup z M f(z). Exercise Consider R n as a metric space, with the standard (Euclidean) metric. Let Z R n be a closed, bounded set ( bounded means contained in a ball of finite radius ). Prove that Z is sequentially compact. Exercise 2.34 (**). Find a pseudocompact Hausdorff topological space which is not compact. Definition A map of topological spaces is called proper if a preimage of any compact subset is always compact. Exercise 2.35 (*). Let f : X Y be a continuous, proper, bijective map of metrizable topological spaces. Prove that f is a homeomorphism, or find a counterexample. Exercise 2.36 (*). Let f : X Y be a continuous, proper map of metrizable topological spaces. Show that f is closed, or find a counterexample. Issued Handout 2, version 1.4.1,
