# Questions tagged [metric-spaces]

A metric space is a pair $(X,d)$, where $X$ is a set and $d:X \times X \to \mathbb{R}$ satisfies the following conditions for all $x,y,z \in X$. (Symmetry) $d(x,y)=d(y,x)$. (Identity of Indiscernibles) $d(x,y)=0$ if and only if $x=y$. (Triangle Inequality) $d(x,y)+d(y,z) \geq d(x,z)$.

### A closed subset $B$ of the Hilbert cube such that $\operatorname{Int}(B) = \emptyset$ and $B$ is not a z-set

$\def\cube{\mathbf Q}$Let $\cube$ be the Hilbert cube. Give an example of a closed subset $B$ of $\cube$ such that $\operatorname{Int}(B) = \emptyset$ and $B$ is not a z-set. If anyone has any idea ...

### Spreading $n$ points in $\{0,1\}^n$ as far as possible
Given a positive integer $n$, the Hamming distance $d^H_n(x,y)$ of $x,y\in \{0,1\}^n$ is defined by $$d^H_n(x,y) = |\{k\in\{0,\ldots,n-1\}: x(k)\neq y(k)\}|.$$ We say that a positive integer $s$ is \$...
