How to check some topological concepts in product and direct sum spaces

Given $a=(a_i)_{i=1}^\infty$ with $a_i \geq 0$ and $b=(b_i)_{i=1}^\infty$ with $b_i \in \mathbb{R}$, let $$E_i = \lbrace (x_n)_{n=1}^\infty : n^{b_i}|x_n|\leq a_i, \forall n\in \mathbb{N} \rbrace$$ ...

Cardinality of a minimal open cover of the disc

Consider $D_1^2(0)=\{x\in\Bbb R^n: ||x||_2\leq 1\}$ and let $\epsilon>0$. Consider the open cover $\mathcal{O}=\{B_\epsilon^2(x):x\in D_1^2(0)\}$ of $D_1^2(0)$. What is the minimum cardinality ...
