  Cantor biography
Cantor was promoted to Extraordinary Professor at Halle in 1872 and in that year he began a friendship with Dedekind who he had met while on holiday in Switzerland.
Cantor continued to correspond with Dedekind, sharing his ideas and seeking Dedekind's opinions, and he wrote to Dedekind in 1877 proving that there was a 1-1 correspondence of points on the interval [0, 1] and points in p-dimensional space.
Cantor also discussed the concept of dimension and stressed the fact that his correspondence between the interval [0, 1] and the unit square was not a continuous map.

  Space-filling curve - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Peano's purpose was to construct a continuous mapping from the unit interval to the unit square, in order to demonstrate Georg Cantor's earlier counterintuitive result that the infinite number of points in a unit interval is the same cardinality as the infinite number of points in any finite-dimensional manifold, such as the unit square.
The composition f of H and g is a continuous function mapping the Cantor set onto the entire unit square.
In one direction a compact Hausdorff space is a normal space and, by the Urysohn metrization theorem, second-countable then implies metrizable.

 Cantor space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, the term Cantor space is sometimes used to denote the topological abstraction of the classical Cantor set: A topological space is a Cantor space if it is homeomorphic to the Cantor set.
A topological characterization of Cantor spaces is given by Brouwer's theorem:
As a corollary, we see that separable, completely metrizable spaces satisfy the Continuum hypothesis: Every such space is either countable or has the cardinality of the continuum.

Cantor was promoted to Extraordinary Professor in 1872, and in that year he began a friendship with Dedekind.
Cantor was surprised at his own discovery and wrote: "I see it, but I don't believe it!" Of course this had implications for geometry and the notion of dimension of a space.
Cantor published a rather strange paper in 1894 which listed the way that all even numbers up to 1000 could be written as the sum of two primes.

 Wikinfo | Cantor set
Since the Cantor set is the complement of a union of open sets, it itself is a closed subset of the reals, and therefore a complete metric space.
Thus the Cantor set is nowhere dense in the unit interval and totally disconnected.
The Cantor set is also homeomorphic to the p-adic integers, and, if one point is removed from it, to the p-adic numbers.

 Against the Black Crusade
Cantor recoiled in horror; the daemon was barely coherent on the plane of the Real, but on the psychic plane it was like a thing of nightmare, shrieking and slashing at its target and jibbering like a madthing.
Cantor squeezed his eyes closed tightly, knowing the act would cause him to miss whole streams of data across the holoscreens...but praying silently to the Emperor that the doing of it would restore to him enough concentration to focus, when he opened them.
For a space marine to reach such a state was almost unheard of--but so much had been set in motion, the moment Abaddon had fallen on the surface of Bray; and as the chief eyewitness, he had taken transcribing the defeat of this Black Crusade as his personal Ordeal.

Abstract While there is, up to homeomorphism, only one Cantor space, i.e., one zero-dimensional, perfect, compact, nonempty metric space, there are many measures on Cantor Space which are not topologically equivalent.
In particular, we indicate the usefulness of a handle decomposition of a manifold in proving the genericity of (periodic) shadowing and strong tolerance stability.
We present a result relating basin cells for a basin to prime ends of type 3, and results relating a finite number of prime ends of either type 2 or 4 to situations when an accessible periodic saddle on the basin boundary has some specified tangencies of its stable and unstable manifolds.

 AMCA: Good measures on Cantor space by Ethan Akin   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
We call a probability measure mu on a Cantor space X "good" if for all clopen subsets U,V of X, mu(U) < mu(V) implies there exists a clopen subset W of V such that mu(U) = mu(W).
This mild-seeming condition is quite strong and is nicely related to measure conditions on orderings of the space.

 ☆ http://theory.stanford.edu/~tingz/papers/s4c.html ☆ S4C Paper
A topological space X often acquires more interesting structures when it is the domain of a dynamical topological system, that is, a pair &lang X,T &rang where X is the topological space and T is a continuous transformation on X. Dynamical topological logic studies dynamical topological systems by logical means.
These spaces do not satisfy topological separability axioms and are not very natural mathematically.
In this paper we prove completeness of S4C for Cantor space, a space that is very popular in the theory of dynamical systems.

Type 2 computational complexity of functions on Cantor's space.
Continuity and computability on Cantor's space C has turned out to be a very natural basis for a Type 2 theory of effectivity (TTE).
Finally, we demonstrate that an optimization of the input-lookahead used by a machine may result in a non-polynomial increase of computation time.

 Topology of data types   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
It is known from various lines of attack (intuitionistic and constructive mathematics, recursion theory, domain theory, programming language semantics, type-two theory of effectivity) that domains of computation, or data types, are topological spaces, and that computable maps are continuous.
To give a simple example, it follows from the compactness of the Cantor space that equality of integer-valued predicates on the Cantor space is decidable.
For example: (1) Compactness of the Cantor space is proved by constructing a program for universally quantifying over it.

The compact quasi $P$-spaces are characterized as the compact spaces which are scattered and of Cantor-Bendixson index no greater than 2.
If $X$ is normal and $X$ and $Y$ are cozero-complemented spaces and $f:X\longrightarrow Y$ is a closed continuous surjection which has the property that $f^{-1}(Z)$ is nowhere dense for each nowhere dense zeroset $Z$, then if $X$ is quasi $P$, so is $Y$.
