INTRODUCTION

•! Each week:
–! Video lectures –! PDF reading material –! Quizzes and peer-graded problems

•! There will be a final exam. •! Videos are stand-alone: you can do this class without the PDF material, but in this case you can only get 80% on your final score. •! Passing grade is 60%. This is what you need to get your certificate.

What we will learn this week:
•! •! •! •! What is the purpose of functional analysis? What is a topology? What is an open set and a closed set? What is convergence?

Construction of a Topology Let us answer this more general question How do you turn a family of sets F into a topology? (while adding the fewest possible sets) ①! Add Ø and the whole space to F. Note: 2 and 3 cannot be permuted! . ②! Add to F all finite intersections of elements of F ③! Add to F all unions of elements of (new) F F is now stable by unions It can be proved F is stable by finite intersections.

X} The discrete topology: Td= {all subsets of X} Given two topologies on X: T1 and T2 with T1 ⊂ T2 .Definition: Topology A set X is always a topological space! The trivial topology: T t = {Ø.

Definition: Neighborhood Let X be a topological space Let x ! X. .! x ! V ii.! V ⊂ U The set of neighborhoods of x is noted V(x). i.t. The set U is called a neighborhood of x if There exists an open set V s.

one can find a finite number of these open sets such that their union contains K.Definition: Compactness Let X be a topological space. We say that K ⊂ X is compact if K is not empty and for any arbitrary open sets Ui ⊂ K (i ! I) whose union contains K. .

We say that (xn) converges to l if !V " V (l). n \$ N % x n " V (xn) may converge to several elements of X . #N " N.Definition: Converging Sequences Let X be a topological space and (xn) be a sequence of elements of X.

the limit of a sequence is unique.Hausdorff Spaces A topological space X is a Hausdorff space (or a T2 space or a separated space) if: Given two distinct points in X one can find two open disjoints sets. . each containing a point In a Hausdorff space.

If X is equipped with the discrete topology. . We say that (xn) converges to l if !V " V (l). #N " N.

it is “easier” for f to be continuous. any mapping is continuous. If X is equipped with the discrete topology. .Definition: Continuous Mappings Let X and Y be topological spaces A mapping f : X#Y is continuous if the inverse image of an open set is an open set. If the topology on X is finer (larger/stronger).

Continuous Mappings and Sequences The chosen definitions “work well”: Proposition Let X and Y be two topological spaces Let f : X#Y is be a continuous mapping Let (xn) be a sequence in X converging to l Define yn = f(xn) Then (yn) converges to f(l) in Y .

we have l ! f-1(U) We always have f-1(U) ⊂ f-1(W) . f-1(U) is open (thanks to the definition of continuity) Since f(l) ! U. Then there exists an open set U such that f(l) ! U and U ⊂ W Since f is continuous.Continuous Mappings and Sequences f-1(W) is a neighborhood of l Proof Let W be any neighborhood of f(l).

there exists N ! N s. QED . Since (xn) converges to l: %V !V (l). n # N " yn ! W So (yn) converges to f(l).t.Continuous Mappings and Sequences Proof Let W be any neighborhood of f(l). \$N !

We can equip X with a topology that makes every fi continuous. We note it "(X. {fi. If everything else fails. . the discrete topology will work!
