  Direct product - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The direct product for vector spaces (not to be confused with the tensor product) is very similar to the one defined for groups above, using the cartesian product with the operation of addition being componentwise, and the scalar multiplication just distributing over all the components.
The product topology for infinite products has a twist, and this has to do with being able to make all the projection maps continuous and to make all functions into the product continuous if and only if all its component functions are continuous (i.e.
Products (with the product topology) are nice with respect to preserving properties of their factors; for example, the product of Hausdorff spaces is Hausdorff; the product of connected spaces is connected, and the product of compact spaces is compact.

 Topology -- Facts, Info, and Encyclopedia article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Topology is concerned with the study of the so-called (Click link for more info and facts about topological properties) topological properties of figures, that is to say properties that do not change under bicontinuous one-to-one transformations (called (Click link for more info and facts about homeomorphism) homeomorphisms).
The root of topology was in the study of geometry in ancient cultures.
The motivating insight behind topology is that some geometric problems depend not on the exact shape of the objects involved, but rather on the "way they are connected together".

is not finite, then the product topology is, in general, weaker than the box topology [1].
Another motivation for the product topology comes from category theory: the product topology is simply the direct categorical product of topological spaces.
This is version 19 of product topology, born on 2002-06-12, modified 2005-09-29.

 Weak topology
In mathematics, the weak topology on a set, with respect to a collection of functions from that set into topological spaces, is the weakest (that is, smallest) topology on the set which makes all the functions continuous.
For example, the product topology is defined to be the weak topology with respect to the projection maps of the product.
A particularly important example of a weak topology is that on a normed vector space with respect to its (continuous) dual.

 Encyclopedia article on Product topology [EncycloZine]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In topology, the cartesian product of topological spaces is turned into a topological space in the following way.
This is easy for finite products, but the statement is (surprisingly) also true for infinite products, when the proof requires the axiom of choice in some form.
This shows that the product space is a product in the sense of category theory.

product topology and is equivalent to the axiom of choice.
This equivalence shows that the formulation of compactness in infinite product spaces is nonconstructive (also not altogether unexpected, since AC itself is equivalent to asserting whether or not an infinite product is empty!).
The right topology, as it turns out, is the cofinite topology with a small twist.

 Product Space
The topology of p is defined by a base, where a base set in p is given by the cross product of open sets in the component spaces.
Once again, verify that the base for the weak topology is valid, and the topology of p includes all finite cross products of open sets in the component spaces, where the remaining components are unconstrained.
With the weak topology, the product function is continuous iff the component functions are all continuous.

 The Box Product Problem   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Given infinitly (countably) many copies of the unit interval, the typical (Tychonov) product topology on their product is topologically a copy of the Hilbert Cube.
The topology of the line is generated by open intervals; i.e., (unions of) sets of form (a,b).
The box topolgy is defined on all infinite products similarly, and a box product is the product, as sets, of topological spaces given the box topology.

This defines > a topology which is at least as fine as the usual product > topology (that is, any set which is open in the usual product > topology is open in this topology).
But U is not open in the product topology: every nonempty open set in the product topology contains measurable functions.

 Topology MAT 530
This is the largest (finest, strongest) topology such that the canonical projection (from the space to the quotient-space) is continuous.
The direct (Cartesian) product of two topological spaces also carries a natural direct product topology that is the smallest (coarsest, weakest) topology such that the projections to the factors are continuous.
Closed subsets of compact spaces are compact in the subspace topology, the product of two compact spaces is also compact.

 Category theory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Initially, the notions were applied in topology, especially algebraic topology, as an important part of the transition from homology (an intuitive and geometric concept) to homology theory, an axiomatic approach.
Tensor products: If C denotes the category of vectorspaces over a fixed field, with linear maps as morphisms, then the tensor product V ⊗ W defines a functor C × C → C which is covariant in both arguments.
A category is called cartesian closed if it has finite direct products and a morphism defined on a finite product can always be represented by a morphism defined on just one of the factors.

This is difficult but interesting when you take an _arbitrary_ (not finite) product of compact sets, since compactness ought to have something to do with finiteness.
Using the box topology the product of compact sets need not be compact).
Another classical use of Tychonoff'Theorem in functional analysis is Banach-Alaoglu's Theorem: In the dual space of a Banach space, the unit ball is compact for its weak topology.

Usually the product of spaces is taken across some indexing set j.
Once the product is established as a set, we apply either the weak or the strong product topology.
Let f be a point in the product space p, which is really a function on j, such that f is in the intersection of two base open sets.

 Topological Equivalents of the Axiom of Choice and of Weak Forms of Choice, by Eric Schechter
Tychonov's Product Theorem: any product of compact topological spaces, when equipped with the product topology, is also compact.
Some other statements about product topologies are also equivalent: the product of complete uniform spaces, when equipped with the product uniformity, is also complete; the product of closures of subsets of topological spaces is equal to the closure of the product of those subsets.
For any set X, the set 2^X (with the product topology) is compact.

Several (old and new) results on stability of quotients (of various types) under product, on sequentiality of product of sequential spaces, on relationships between a topology and the upper Kuratowski convergence on its closed sets are derived from a general mechanism of duality that uses the continuous convergence.

Please note that titles occasionally go out of print or publishers run out of stock.
This book is divided into two parts: an introduction to topology, using metric spaces to motivate the definition of a topological space, and the algebraic applications of topology (such as homotopy theory and Jordan's theorem).
Another excellent thing is the large number of exercises, most of which have full solutions (!) and/or hints at the end of the book.
