Introduction a la Topologie

Ce cours de topologie a été dispensé en licence à l'Université de Rennes 1 de 1999 à 2002. Toutes les buildings permettant de parler de limite et de continuité sont d'abord dégagées, puis l'utilité de l. a. compacité pour ramener des problèmes de complexité infinie à l'étude d'un nombre fini de cas est explicitée.

Spaces of Constant Curvature

This publication is the 6th variation of the vintage areas of continuing Curvature, first released in 1967, with the former (fifth) variation released in 1984. It illustrates the excessive measure of interaction among crew concept and geometry. The reader will enjoy the very concise remedies of riemannian and pseudo-riemannian manifolds and their curvatures, of the illustration conception of finite teams, and of symptoms of modern development in discrete subgroups of Lie teams.

The set of equivalence classes of ∼ is denoted M(C(X)). 11 is an example of a direct limit; we often indicate this by writing M(C(X)) = lim M(n, C(X)). −→ We will usually identify M(n, C(X)) with its image in M(C(X)). We can view an element of M(C(X)) as a countably inﬁnite matrix with entries in C(X) and all but ﬁnitely many entries equal to 0. 12 Let X be compact Hausdorﬀ. Then M(C(X)) is an algebra without unit under the operations of matrix addition and multiplication and scalar multiplication.

Idempotents E and F in M(n, C(X)) are algebraically equivalent if there exist elements A and B in M(n, C(X)) such that AB = E and BA = F. 48 Preliminaries (a) Show that A and B can be chosen so that A = EA = AF = EAF and B = FB = BE = FBE. (b) Prove that algebraic equivalence deﬁnes an equivalence relation ∼a on the idempotents in M(n, C(X)). (c) Prove that E ∼s F implies that E ∼a F. (d) If E, F in M(n, C(X)) are algebraically equivalent, prove that diag(E, 0n ) is similar to diag(F, 0n ) in M(2n, C(X)).

Therefore ψ(a1 )+ψ(b2 )+ψ(c) = ψ(a2 )+ψ(b1 )+ψ(c), and so ψ(a1 −a2 ) = ψ(a1 )−ψ(a2 ) = ψ(b1 )−ψ(b2 ) = ψ(b1 − b2 ). By construction, the map ψ is a group homomorphism and is unique because it is determined by ψ. 7 Vect(X) vs. Idem(C(X)) 31 a group G(A) and a monoid homomorphism i : A −→ G(A) with the properties listed in the statement of the theorem. The map i is a monoid homomorphism, so there exists a group homomorphism i : G(A) −→ G(A) such that ij = i. Next, because j : A −→ G(A) is a monoid homomorphism, there exists a group homomorphism j : G(A) −→ G(A) such that ji = j.
