 Regular space
X is a regular space iff, given any closed set F and any point x that does not belong to F, there are a neighbourhood U of x and a neighbourhood V of F that are disjoint.
On the other hand, spaces that are regular but not completely regular, or preregular but not regular, are usually constructed only to provide counterexamples to conjectures, showing the boundaries of possible theorems.
Suppose that A is a set in a topological space X and f is a continuous function from A to a regular space Y.

This constructs a quotient space of the original seminormed vector space, and this quotient is a normed vector space.
From the point of view of topology, the seminormed vector space that we started with has a lot of extra structure; for example, it's a vector space, and it has a seminorm, and these define a pseudometric and a uniform structure that are compatible with the topology.

 Kolmogorov biography
Kolmogorov's mother had been on a journey from the Crimea back to her home in Tunoshna near Yaroslavl and it was in the home of his maternal grandfather in Tunoshna that Kolmogorov spent his youth.
Kolmogorov was appointed a professor at Moscow University in 1931.
If Kolmogorov made a major contribution to Hilbert's sixth problem, he completely solved Hilbert's Thirteenth Problem in 1957 when he showed that Hilbert was wrong in asking for a proof that there exist continuous functions of three variables which could not be represented by continuous functions of two variables.

Andrey Nikolaevich Kolmogorov (Russian: Андре́й Никола́евич Колмого́ров) (April 25, 1903 - October 20, 1987) was a Soviet mathematician who made major advances in the fields of probability theory and topology.
He was a founder of algorithmic complexity theory which is often referred to as simply Kolmogorov complexity theory.

Another way to frame this is to ask, "Can space itself be measured, or is space part of the measurement system?"?title=The same debate applies also to time, and an important formulation in both areas was given by Immanuel Kant.
Schopenhauer, in the preface to his On the Will in Nature, stated that "space is the condition of the possibility of juxtaposition."?title=This is in accordance with Kant's understanding of space as a form in the mind of an observing subject.
In physics, time and mass are fundamental quantities and space is defined via time — as the distance light travels in exactly 1/299 792 458 second.

 [No title]
Kolmogorov complexity is a modern notion of randomness dealing with the quantity of information in individual objects; that is, pointwise randomness rather than average randomness as produced by a random source.
It was proposed by A.N. Kolmogorov in 1965 to quantify the randomness of individual objects in an objective and absolute manner.
`Kolmogorov' complexity was earlier proposed by Ray Solomonoff in a Zator Technical Report in 1960 and in a long paper in Information and Control in 1964.

 Probability - Kolmogorov
Definition: If (S,S,m) is a measure space, and m(S) = 1 then (i) m is a probability measure, and (ii) (S,S,m) is a probability triple.
S is called the sample space; a point in S is called a sample point.
The (first 3) Kolmogorov axioms and the Bayesian axioms can be derived from each other (NO!), and we sometimes blur the distinction.

The classical turbulence theory by Kolmogorov is reconsidered using Navier-Stokes' equation generalized to 6D physical-plus-eddy space.
Strong pseudo-singularity is shown to reveal itself along the boundary `ridge' line separating the dissipation and inertial sub-ranges surrounding the origin of the eddy space.
It is supported by the observation that the universal power spectrum calculated rediscovers the Kolmogorov's -5/3 power law as independent of the dimensional approach.

 Symmetric Kolmogorov phase space
on the embedding space we notice that it is invariant under the reflection r.
As expected, a Galerkin projection onto those three K-L eigenmodes, augmented by a fourth mode representing the basic Kolmogorov flow 67#67, generates an ODE which has, for 68#68 a periodic orbit with reflection symmetry.
However, in order to resolve the homoclinic behavior properly in a Galerkin projection we found we would need many more modes making it a system that is almost as complicated to analyze as the original PDE simulations.

 Kolmogorov Turbulence Theory in 6D Navier-Stokes Equation
Its success is the finding that the dissipation region in the sense of Kolmogorov has the shape like a 'worm' with the radius of the Kolmogorov length aligned randomly streamwise.
In this paper the classical Kolmogorov turbulence theory is reconsidered in the light of the 6D Navier-Stokes equation.
It is one of the new findings that have been hidden behind the classical dimensional analysis, yet is totally consistent with the Kolmogorov theory, leading, as an example, to the -5/3 law for the power spectrum.

 Kolmogorov space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
spaces or Kolmogorov spaces, named after Andrey Kolmogorov, form a broad class of well-behaved topological spaces.
Topological spaces X and Y are Kolmogorov equivalent when their Kolmogorov quotients are homeomorphic.
Many properties of topological spaces are preserved by this equivalence; that is, if X and Y are Kolmogorov equivalent, then X has such a property if and only if Y does.

Problems that are complete for exponential space are provably intractable and known to be exceedingly complex in several technical respects.
However, every problem decidable in exponential space is efficiently reducible to every complete problem, so each complete problem must have a highly organized structure.
The authors have recently exploited this fact to prove that complete problems are, in two respects, unusually simple for problems in expontential space.

-space or a Kolmogorov space, if for any two distinct points of the space there exists an open set containing one of the points but not containing the other.
It is precisely in these spaces that the closure of the union of any family of sets is the same as the union of the closures of these sets.
Thus, the study of discrete spaces is equivalent to that of partially ordered sets.

For a Markov process with a countable set of states, the transition function is completely determined by the transition probabilities
In the case of a finite number of states, equations (3) and (4) hold, provided that the limits in (5) exist.
Besides in a probabilistic context, Kolmogorov equations of course also occur as equations modelling real diffusions, such as the diffusion of molecules of a substance through porous material or the spread of some property through a biological structured population.

 The Unity of Mathematics
In historical terms, this result precedes Gelfand's theorem and is the foundation for it-he starts with a general commutative Banach algebra and reconstructs a space from it-thus establishing in what sense that the space to algebra correspondence is surjective, and hence by the aforementioned theorem, bi-unique.
Stone's paper is the true starting point of these ideas, but this paper of Kolmogorov and Gelfand is the second landmark on the path that led to Grothendieck's concept of a scheme(with Gelfand's representation theorem probably as the third).
As an aside, this paper was not Kolmogorov's first foray into topological algebra-earlier he conjectured the possibility of a classification of locally compact fields, a problem which was solved by Pontryagin.

He said that once a new superconductive material is identified, scientists typically can manipulate the substance -- twisting it or doping it with other elements ñ to create related structures that might have even more appealing properties.
Curtarolo and Kolmogorov decided it was time to try something else.
Additional calculations identified the binary alloy lithium monoboride as a promising candidate that might be both structurally stable and superconductive at temperatures that exceed those of the current binary alloy record-holder.

Following the catastrophe, on the other hand, magnetic reconnection plays an essential role in assisting the loss of equilibrium to smoothly develop a plausible eruption by converting the magnetic energy previously stored in the system into heat and kinetic energy at a reasonable rate.
In this presentation we will briefly introduce the fundamental properties of the catastrophe models of solar eruptions, display the expected observational consequences, and discuss what consequences can be directly deduced from the model calculations and what needs to be further investigated via improving our existing models on the basis of more rigorous calculations.
We examine the relationship between the acceleration of the flux rope and the thermal energy release rate in a loss-of-equilibrium model of coronal mass ejections.
