  Analysis WebNotes: Chapter 06, Class 34
A set is compact if whenever we cover it with infinitely many open sets, there is always enough redundancy in the covering that we can select finitely many of the covering sets to do the job.
Although the hypotheses in the two statements are different (this example assumes that the domain is compact; Proposition 6.21 assumed that the domain was sequentially compact), the hypotheses ammount to the same.
This is because compact metric spaces and sequentially compact metric spaces are exactly the same things.

Note: Some authors require that a compact topological space be Hausdorff as well, and use the term quasi-compact to refer to a non-Hausdorff compact space.
The modern convention seems to be to use compact in the sense given here, but the old definition is still occasionally encountered (particularly in the French school).

The Minnesota Compact has not been developed in connection with any of the parties or the candidates, though former politicians are involved in advising the steering committee and in pulling together the organizations associated with the project.
Compact staff and steering committee members will be working with these debate organizers to promote complementary, non-repetitive, creative formats (including mini-debates and formats directed at younger voters) and questions which follow up on candidate responses from previous debates.
Compact organizers encourage the news media to make use of the standards in their general coverage and ad critiques and urge the public to use these standards in holding candidates, parties, and interest groups accountable for their campaign discourse.

These compacts frequently provide for the allocation of criminal and civil jurisdiction between the State and the Indian Tribe for the enforcement of laws and regulations.
All negotiated and signed compacts are sent to the U.S. Department of the Interior for approval and become effective as soon as they are published in the Federal Register.
The compact specifically sets forth the types of permitted games, establishes technical standards for the gaming machines, authorizes the state to inspect casinos, requires background investigations and licensing of casino employees, and requires tribes to pay for at least a portion of the state's expenses for regulating tribal casinos.

Two compact subsets A and B of S are close to each other provided that every point in each of the subsets is close to some point in the other subset.
Thus the two sets A and B in Figure 1 are not close, because the point x in A is far away from every point in B, whereas the two sets A and B in figure 2 are close to each other.
We start with a compact metric space M and consider the collection H(M) consisting of all the subsets of M which are compact.

 Topological Properties
The set S has an infinite number of members, since for any of the equalities, specifying the absolute value still leaves three degrees of freedom (if the domain had been x E R, then S would have had a finite number of elements).
A compact set is a statement about the ability to find a finite number of open sets that cover a set, given any open cover.
In other words, to be compact is to be closed and bound, to be closed and bound is to be compact.

 HISTORY OF MINIMAL PAIRS OF COMPACT CONVEX SETS
Since in all three cases the pairs of compact convex sets are not uniquely determined, minimal representations are of special importance.
The general frame for the investigation of minimal pairs of nonempty compact convex sets is the the Radstrom -Hormander lattice over a topological vector space of pairs of nonempty compact convex sets (see [16], [30] and [34]).
Invariants of minimal pairs of compact convex sets, as for instance the affine dimension or codimension of the union of a minimal pair, were studied in [29] and the amound of minimal pairs has been investigated by M. Wiernowolski [42].

 Analysis WebNotes: Chapter 06, Class Ch06
Compactness is a tremendously useful property that some (the very nicest) metric spaces have.
The results we prove in this chapter on the relationship between continuous functions and compact metric spaces lead to some of the most important and deepest results of this course.
Powerful results such as Rolle's Theorem, the Mean Value Theorem and the Inverse function Theorem all come as fairly straightforward applications of the results on compactness that we prove in the first part of the chapter.

 Compactness
The property of being a bounded set in a metric space is not preserved by homeomorphism.
A compact subset of R with its usual metric is closed and bounded.
The closed bounded interval is compact and hence its image is compact and hence is also a closed bounded subset which is in fact an interval also, by connectedness.

The Investment Compact is based on the working assumption that improvement of the investment climate and acceleration of economic reform through sound market-oriented policies are the only means to promote a vibrant private sector and increase foreign and domestic investment in the economy.
The countries of South East Europe participating in the Investment Compact are: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Romania, and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia: Serbia and Montenegro.

This seems complicated to me. In general a compact set is one that has the property that any open covering of it can be reduced to a finite subcovering.
a compact set is any set which is closed and bounded.
Furthermore an arbitrary intersection of closed sets is closed and so an arbitrary intersection of compact sets is compact.
