Algebraic Topology; Foundations; Errata; April 8, 2017 Equivalence Relations and Quotient Sets. Definition: Quotient Topology If X is a topological space and A is a set and if f : X → A {\displaystyle f:X\rightarrow A} is a surjective map, then there exist exactly one topology τ {\displaystyle \tau } on A relative to which f is a quotient map; it is called the quotient topology induced by f . We now have an unambiguously deﬁned special topology on the set X∗ of equivalence classes. corresponding quotient map. But that does not mean that it is easy to recognize which topology is the “right” one. (6.48) For the converse, if \(G\) is continuous then \(F=G\circ q\) is continuous because \(q\) is continuous and compositions of continuous maps are continuous.

Basic Point-Set Topology 3 means that f(x) is not in O.On the other hand, x0 was in f −1(O) so f(x 0) is in O.Since O was assumed to be open, there is an interval (c,d) about f(x0) that is contained in O.The points f(x) that are not in O are therefore not in (c,d) so they remain at least a ﬁxed positive distance from f(x0).To summarize: there are points The decomposition space is also called the quotient space.

(1.47) Given a space \(X\) and an equivalence relation \(\sim\) on \(X\), the quotient set \(X/\sim\) (the set of equivalence classes) inherits a topology called the quotient topology.Let \(q\colon X\to X/\sim\) be the quotient map sending a point \(x\) to its equivalence class \([x]\); the quotient topology is defined to be the most refined topology on \(X/\sim\) (i.e. /Type /XObject endobj A subset C of X is saturated with respect to if C contains every set that it intersects.
