Theorem 6.11: A subset of

is compact iff it is

closed and bounded.

Definition: A topological space is countably compact

if every countable open cover has a finite subcover.

Definition: A topological space is a Lindelöf space

if every cover has a countable subcover.

Theorem 6.12: If X is a Lindelöf space, then X is

compact iff it is countably compact.

Theorem 6.13: The Lindelöf Theorem Every

second countable space is Lindelöf.

Proof see page 175

Definition: A topological space X has the BW-property

if every infinite subset of X has a limit point.

Theorem 2.14: Every compact space has the BWP.

Proof Assume to the contrary that X is a compact

space and that B is an infinite subset of X that has

no limit points. Then B is closed (why?) and

B is compact (why?). Since B has no limit points,

for every point x in B there exists an open set

such that

Therefore

is an open cover of B.

Furthermore

does not have a finite subcover of B (why?).

Definition p is an isolated point if {p} is open.

See Problem 10 on page 186.

Example 6.3.1

(a) Closed bounded intervals [a,b] have the BWP.

(b) Open intervals do not have the BWP.

(c) Unbounded subsets of R do not have the BWP.

(d) The unit sphere

in the Hilbert space

does not have the BWP (why?).

subset having diameter less than

Theorem 6.15: For metric spaces compactness = BWP.
