Lecture Notes

  • Question. The fact that the metric space of real-valued functions on the unit interval with uniform metric is complete uses the fact that [0,1] is compact right? If the function space is defined on a non-compact topological space is that necessarily complete?... -Kai Xwbdsb 00:01, 20 December 2010 (EST)
    • No, the compactness of [0,1] is not used. As we said in class, if (f_n) is Cauchy in the uniform metric, then for any x, the sequence (f_n(x)) is Cauchy in {\mathbb R}, so it has a limit. Call that limit f(x); it is not hard to show that f is continuous and that f_n\to f. Theorem 43.6 in Munkres is a slight generalization of this. Drorbn 07:12, 20 December 2010 (EST)
