topology (point-set topology, point-free topology)
see also differential topology, algebraic topology, functional analysis and topological homotopy theory
Basic concepts
fiber space, space attachment
Extra stuff, structure, properties
Kolmogorov space, Hausdorff space, regular space, normal space
sequentially compact, countably compact, locally compact, sigma-compact, paracompact, countably paracompact, strongly compact
Examples
Basic statements
closed subspaces of compact Hausdorff spaces are equivalently compact subspaces
open subspaces of compact Hausdorff spaces are locally compact
compact spaces equivalently have converging subnet of every net
continuous metric space valued function on compact metric space is uniformly continuous
paracompact Hausdorff spaces equivalently admit subordinate partitions of unity
injective proper maps to locally compact spaces are equivalently the closed embeddings
locally compact and second-countable spaces are sigma-compact
Theorems
Analysis Theorems
A subset of a topological space is called clopen if it is both open and closed. Equivalently, a clopen set is a complemented element of the frame of open subsets, a definition which makes as good sense for locales as for spaces.
The set of clopen sets in any space forms a Boolean algebra. If the space is a Stone space, then it can be reconstructed from its Boolean algebra of clopens. On the other hand, a space is connected just when the only clopens are the empty set and the whole space.
