Topic: Continuity topology


  
  Continuous function - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, a continuous function is a function in which arbitrarily small changes in the input produce arbitrarily small changes in the output.
Probably the most common one, found in topology, is described in the article on continuity (topology).
In general, sequential continuity is not equivalent to the analogue of Cauchy continuity, which is just called continuity (see continuity (topology) for details).

All polynomials are continuous, and so are the exponential functions, logarithms, square root function and trigonometric functions.
For example, if a child undergoes continuous growth from 1m to 1.5m between the ages of 2 years and 6 years, then, at some time between 2 years and 6 years of age, the child's height must have equalled 1.25m.

 Continuous function (topology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In topology and related areas of mathematics a continuous function is a morphism between topological spaces; that is, a mapping which preserves the topological structure.
A continuous functions between two topological spaces stays continuous if we strengthen the topology of the domain space or weaken the topology of the codomain space.
In real analysis continuity of functions is commonly defined using the ε-δ definition which builds on the property of the real line being a metric space.

In pointless topology one considers instead the lattice of open sets as the basic notion of the theory, while Grothendieck topologies are certain structures defined on arbitrary categories which allow the definition of sheaves on those categories, and with that the definition of quite general cohomology theories.

Beginning with set theory and metric spaces, this course presents the basic concepts and tools of general (set-theoretic) topology --- continuity, compactness, separation and connectedness --- aiming to show why these are of such crucial importance in so many areas of mathematics, especially geometry and analysis.
Topology also has important applications in applied mathematics, computer science and theoretical physics, and the course should provide a useful foundation for postgraduate work in a wide variety of fields.

In fact this provides the characterisation of continuity we have been seeking: Two metrics on the same set X determine the same classes of continuous functions if and only if a subset of X is open with respect to one of the metrics if and only if it is open with respect to the other.
It is then easy to see that two topologies on the same underlying set are ``essentially the same'' if and only if the same functions are continuous with respect to one of these topologies as are continuous with respect to the other.
To define what we mean by continuity of functions is in effect to specify topologies, with two topologies on a given set being ``essentially the same'' if and only if they give rise to precisely the same classes of continuous functions.

Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the continuity of the mappings which, for a given set of cross-sectional areas of a truss, gives the bar forces and nodal displacements present in equilibrium.
We allow the areas to approach and attain zero values, and hence analyse continuity of the state mappings even as the topology is altered.

Abstract: The concept of continuity is familiar to us from our first calculus course, and in multivariable calculus, we learn how to extend this to R^2.
In fact, the branch of mathematics known as topology generalizes continuity even more.

So as long as continuity is respected nothing can get rid of the twist or kink in the first vector field.
This defect is called topological because we can't get rid of it without forsaking continuity, and as everyone should know continuity = topology.

Thus, a space D is injective in sense (1) iff for any space Y and subspace X and any continuous function f:X-->D there is a continuous extension f':Y-->D of f.
Perhaps it is not so obvious, however, that injective spaces are also closed under the formation of function spaces, once the space of continuous functions is given the right topology; indeed the category of injective spaces and continuous functions is a cartesian closed category.
Many of the properties of these spaces are provable once the spaces can be characterized as a kind of complete lattice with an appropriate, uniquely determined topology; continuity of functions then comes down to preservation of sups of directed subsets of the lattice.
