### Why does normality imply that a countable base $B$ contains at least one set $U$ whose closure is a subset of another set $V \in B$?

I'm reading Aliprantis and Border's excellent text, Infinite Dimensional Analysis: A Hitchhiker's Guide (PDF available at link, assuming I've done this properly), and I've reached an impasse in the ...

### Subspaces of compact spaces and quotients of Hausdorff spaces

Let $\operatorname{Top}$ be the class of topological spaces. Furthermore, let $\mathcal{U}\subset\operatorname{Top}$ and $\mathcal{V}\subset\operatorname{Top}$ classes satisfying the following ...

### Hausdorff quotient collapsing and separating a prescribed collection of disjoint closed subsets

Let $X$ be a compact Hausdorff space (I don't mind assuming it's metrizable). Let $A_i$ $i\in \mathbb{N}$ be a collection of disjoint closed subsets of $X$. My question: Does there exist a Hausdorff ...

### Countable intersections in topological space

If a T1 topological space is closed under countable intersections, does this necessarily make the topology discrete? It is easy to construct a counterexample if the topological space is not assumed to ...

### Uniqueness of limits and compactness implies closure

It is not difficult to prove that in a Hausdorff topological space every compact set is closed, and almost trivial that if in a topological space X every compact set is closed then X is T1. As ...

### Is a separable compact Hausdorff space already metrizable? [closed]

It is a known fact that a 2nd countable compact Hausdorff space is metrizable. What if we weaken the 2nd countable to separable only - is the space still metrizable? The core of the question, or a ...

### A relative version of Urysohn's Lemma?

Let $f:Y\to X$ be a continuous surjective map between locally compact Hausdorff spaces. Assume there is a continuous section $s:X\to Y$ which has closed image and is a homeomorphism to the image. I ... 63 views

### Breaking down the co power of a topological space

Consider a compact, Hausdorff topological space which is homeomorphic to its own co-power over an index set $I$, so $X \cong \prod_{i \in I } X$. Is there necessarily another topological space, which ...

### The Cauchy Problem in General Relativity: Existence of a Hausdorff Development

This is related to a problem that I posed about a year ago. I was given several references by a number of experts who were kind enough to entertain my rather arcane question. Those references were ...

### Relationship between weak Lp and strong Lq topologies for q<p

Specificaly: Does convergence in $L^{\frac{1}{2}}$ imply weak $L^2$ convergence? Having a limit in $L^{\frac{1}{2}}$ topology and a limit in weak $L^2$ topology whether these are always equal? If not,...

### Does countable compactness imply local compactness in Hausdorff spaces?

The question arose while comparing the notions of compactness, countable compactness, local compactness, and "Lindelofness" in Hausdorff spaces. It is straightforward to show that compactness implies ...

### Minimal Hausdorff

A Hausdorff space $(X,\tau)$ is said to be minimal Hausdorff if for each topology $\tau' \subseteq \tau$ with $\tau' \neq \tau$ the space $(X,\tau')$ is not Hausdorff. Every compact Hausdorff space ...

### Compact cover of a Hausdorff compact space

In his book "Riemannian Geometry" do Carmo cites the Hopf-Rinow theorem in chapter 7. (theorem 2.8). One of the equivalences there deals with the cover of the manifold using nested sequence of compact ...
