By J. R. Isbell

Uniform areas play an identical function for uniform continuity as topological areas for continuity. the speculation used to be created in 1936 via A. Weil, whose unique axiomatization was once quickly via these of Bourbaki and Tukey; during this booklet use is made mainly of Tukey's process, in line with uniform coverings. The association of the publication as a complete is determined by the Eilenberg-MacLane notions of class, functor and naturality, within the spirit of Klein's Erlanger software yet with larger succeed in. The preface offers a concise background of the topic seeing that 1936 and a foreword outlines the class conception of Eilenberg and MacLane. The chapters hide basic ideas and buildings; functionality areas; mappings into polyhedra; measurement (1) and (2); compactifications and in the neighborhood advantageous areas. lots of the chapters are via routines, occasional unsolved difficulties, and a huge unsolved challenge; the recognized notable challenge of characterizing the Euclidean airplane is mentioned in an appendix. there's a sturdy index and a copious bibliography meant to not itemize assets yet to lead extra interpreting.

Example text

PROOF. Let e:A—>X be an embedding and f:A—»/ a mapping. Apply Samuel compactification 0; and observe that /3(e) :p(A)—>p(X) is again an embedding. Hence the mapping 0(f) can be extended to g:/3(X)—>/; and the reflection r: X—>P(X) gives gr, extending / over X. The real line is also an injective space in topology, but not in uniform spaces. We are not prepared to prove that this is true no matter what compatible uniformity one puts on the line (see Notes, p. 55), but for the usual metric we need only this: the function on the integers which takes n to n2 is uniformly continuous (since the integers are uniformly discrete), but no extension over the line is uniformly continuous.

13. FAR AND SEPARATED. (a) The following conditions on a pair of sets A, B in a uniform space fiX are equivalent: (i) A and B are far in nX; (ii) A and B are far in pnX\ (iii) A and B have disjoint closures in foX; (iv) A and B are separated by a bounded uniformly continuous realvalued function on nX. (b) For a normal space X in the uniformity induced by embedding in &X (the Cech uniformity), every finite open covering is uniform. (c) A uniformizable space is normal if and only if every finite open covering is normal.

C) A mapping with image not closed is not a polar monomorphism. 5. QUOTIENT TOPOLOGY. (a) There exist quotient mappings f:X—>Y of uniform spaces such that the topological quotient of X by / is not uniformizable. In fact, for every non-normal uniformizable space X, in the fine uniformity, there is such a mapping. (b) In the category of uniformizable spaces and continuous mappings, there are quotients; every mapping / is f0q, where q is a polar epimorphism and /o is one-to-one. The topology of the quotient space is called the uniformizable quotient topology.
