Example text

Vk+k := Uk ∩ (X − A). The covering α1 = {V1 , . . 1) for p = 2. Step 2. p = 3. Assume that V1 ∩ V2 ∩ V3 = ∅, Vi = α1 , Vi ∩ A = ∅ for i = 1, 2, 3, and V1 ∩ V2 ∩ V3 ∩ A = ∅. We can repeat the same trick as in the ﬁrst step for sets U1 = V1 ∩ V2 and U2 = V3 . If U1 ∩ U2 ∩ ∂A = ∅ then we put V1 := V1 , V2 := V2 and V3 := V3 − V1 ∩ V2 ∩ V3 . If U1 ∩ U2 ∩ ∂A = ∅ then V1 := (V1 ∩ Int A) ∪ W1 , V2 := (V2 ∩ Int A) ∪ W1 and V3 := (V3 ∩ Int A) ∪ W2 . The same correction is done for every triple of sets Vi , Vj , Vl (1 ≤ i < j < l ≤ k).

Because limm xl,m = ul there then exists ni as large as needed such that d(xi,ni , ui) < δ/3. Then we obtain d(xni , u) < δ but this is a contradiction and the proof is completed. Now, we would like to point out that more appropriate than dH metric in C(X) is the metric dC , called the (Borsuk) metric of continuity. 7) dC (A, B) = inf{ε > 0 | exists f: A → B and g: B → A such that d(x, f(x)) ≤ ε and d(y, g(y)) ≤ ε for every x ∈ A and y ∈ B}, 4. HYPERSPACES OF METRIC SPACES 25 where A, B ∈ C(X) and f, g stand for continuous functions.

Then {yn } ⊂ f −1 (K) and hence we can assume, without loss of generality, that limn yn = y. Since A is closed we have y ∈ A but f is continuous so f(y) = x ∈ f(A) and the proof is completed. 1) is not true. 8. VIETORIS MAPS 39 As we already known a space X is closed acyclic provided: (i) Hq (X) = 0 for all q ≥ 1, and (ii) H0 (X) ≈ Q. In other words a space X is acyclic if its homology are exactly the same as the homology of a one point space {p}. An equivalent deﬁnition of acyclic spaces is the following: a space X is acyclic if and only if the map j: {p} → X, j(p) = x0 ∈ X, induces an isomorphism j∗ : H∗({p}) → H∗ (X).
