  Hausdorff space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hausdorff spaces are named for Felix Hausdorff, one of the founders of topology.
Pseudometric spaces typically are not Hausdorff, but they are preregular, and their use in analysis is usually only in the construction of Hausdorff gauge spaces.
Compact preregular spaces are normal, meaning that they satisfy Urysohn's lemma and the Tietze extension theorem and have partitions of unity subordinate to locally finite open covers.

 Tychonoff space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
X is a completely regular space iff, given any closed set F and any point x that does not belong to F, there is a continuous function f from X to the real line R such that f(x) is 0 and f(y) is 1 for every y in F.
More precisely, for every Tychonoff space X, there exists a compact Hausdorff space K and an injective continuous map j from X to K such that the inverse of j is also continuous.
It is characterised by the universal property that, given a continuous map f from X to any other compact Hausdorff space Y, there is a unique continuous map g from βX to Y that extends f in the sense that f is the composition of g and j.

In mathematics, a compact space is a space that resembles a closed and bounded subset of Euclidean space R

 Locally compact space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Every compact Hausdorff space is also locally compact, and many examples of compact spaces may be found in the article Compact space.
Thus locally compact spaces are as useful in p-adic analysis as in classical analysis.
The notion of local compactness is important in the study of topological groups mainly because every locally compact Hausdorff group G carries natural measures called the Haar measures which allow one to integrate functions defined on G.

 Compact space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For example, in R, the closed unit interval [0, 1] is compact, but the set of integers Z is not (it is not bounded) and neither is the half-open interval [0, 1) (it is not closed).
Suppose X is a Hausdorff space, and we have a point x in X and a finite subset A of X not containing x.

In 1914, Felix Hausdorf, generalizing the notion of metric space, coined the term "topological space" and gave the definition for what is now called Hausdorff space.
The traditional joke is that the topologist can't tell the coffee cup she is drinking out of from the donut she is eating, since a sufficiently pliable donut could be reshaped to the form of a coffee cup by creating a dimple and progressively enlarging it, while shrinking the hole into a handle.

The Stone-Weierstrass theorem generalizes the Weierstrass approximation theorem in two directions: instead of the real interval [a,b], an arbitrary compact Hausdorff space K is considered, and instead of the algebra of polynomial functions, approximation with elements from more general subalgebras of C(K) is investigated.
Further, there is a generalization of the Stone-Weierstrass theorem to noncompact Tychonoff spaces, namely, any continuous function on a Tychonoff space space is approximated uniformly on compact sets by algebras of the type appearing in the Stone-Weierstrass theorem and described below.
Suppose K is a compact Hausdorff space with at least two points and L is a lattice in C(K,R).

In a first-countable space (such as a metric space), it is enough to consider only sequences, instead of all nets.
However, the compact Hausdorff spaces are "absolutely closed" in a certain sense.
Stone-Čech compactification, a process that turns a completely regular Hausdorff space into a compact Hausdorff space, may be described as adjoining limits of certain nonconvergent nets to the space.

Since every locally compact Hausdorff space X is Tychonoff, it can be embedded in a compact Hausdorff space b(X) using the Stone-Cech compactification.

Section 1.12, devoted to separability, includes the Banach-Mazur characterization of separable Banach spaces as isomorphs of quotient spaces of \ell_1, and ends with the characterization of separable normed spaces as the normed spaces that are compactly generated so that the stage is set for the introduction of weakly compactly generated normed spaces in Section 2.8.

Every totally disconnected compact Hausdorff space arises as an example of (8), up to homeomorphism, according to the Stone Representation Theorem for Boolean algebras.
Given a totally disconnected compact Hausdorff space X, one can recover the boolean algebra as the boolean agebra of simultaneously open and closed subsets of X. This is explained in Halmos' nice book Lectures on Boolean Algebras, which is where I learned most of what I know about it.

 Stone-Cech Compactification - NoiseFactory Science Archives (http://noisefactory.co.uk)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-13)
Compact spaces are very popular with topologists, because they're very easy to reason about.
If X is one of the standard spaces used in complicated mathematics it probably isn't compact, and that means it may be quite hard to reason about its properties.
Consequently a space has a compactification (and so is Tychonov) if and only if it can be identified with a subspace of a compact Hausdorff space.

Abstract: C^*-algberas are a special class of norm-closed algerbas of operators on Hilbert space that have special connections with in topology, geometry, harmonic analysis, etc. Any COMMUTATIVE C*-algebra is naturally isomorphic to the algebra of complex functions on a compact Hausdorff space naturally associated with it.
We extend this (commutative) Gelfand-Naimark duality to the general (possibly noncommutative) C^*-algebras, by identifying the noncommutative analog of compact Hausdorff spaces.

In 1890's Poincare' brought the geometry of the phase space (space of "possible values") to bear on the analysis to investigate the integral curves in their entire domain of existence (Poincare' reccurence theorem).
Thus, the focus shiffted away from differential equations that define a dynamical system to the phase space and the group of transformations implicit in the system.
We shall focus on topological dynamical systems where a discrete semigroup is acting on a compact Hausdorff space.

 Atlas: Spaces in which Point-finite Open Covers have Finite Subcovers by Nurettin Ergun
Another related well known result has been proved by Iseki and Kasahara in 1957: A regular Hausdorff space X is countably compact if and only if every point-finite open cover of X has a finite subcover.
He defined a non countably compact Hausdorff space in which point-finite open covers have finite subcovers.
In fact any countably compact Hausdorff space is collectionwise Hausdorff since closed-discrete subsets are necessarily finite in such spaces, but, examples of non-regular countably compact Hausdorff spaces are already known.
