comment Typo or additional hypotheses needed in problem 5, p.71 of Bredon's Topology and Geometry?
I edited the question. It may be possible that the map you define is not an isomorphism after all.

comment Is there a cantor set in $\mathbb{R}^{n}-\{0\}$ which intersects every ray from the origin?
Very elegant, +1!

Yes, you are absolutely right. I edited the question.

comment A functional structure on the graph of the absolute value function
I think I follow, but just in case, could you clarify what you mean when saying "Lipschitz at $(0,0)$".

comment “Coordinate functions” on the structure-sheaf definition of a smooth manifold
No problem. I edited the question and added some links to questions related to the problems of the section you are reading. I am myself stuck on problem 5 p.71 (see the last link I added at the end of my answer)

@Pratyush: I have looked at this more carefully and updated my answer.

comment “Coordinate functions” on the structure-sheaf definition of a smooth manifold
@ Alex P. I edited my answer. I hope it helps. $f_{1}=id$ will not work. Just let $f_{1}$ be any constant function.

@Alex P. Yes, it is false. I provide an asnwer below.

I guess you mean that smooth function $h$ be unique, as $g$ is not assumed smooth.

I think he/she meant $D$.

comment Nets, dense subsets and continuous maps
$f=g$ on $X$? $f$'s domain is $D$. What do you mean? $g$ seems to extend $f$. So I would say that $f=g$ on $D$. But that it does so continuously is not so clear to me.

And that is how it is done. Nice!

comment Upper triangular matrices in $\mathrm{SL}(2,\mathbb{R})$
Yes, $T$ is clearly non-compact. That is precisely why I am asking.

Thanks, very nice.

comment Counterexample or proof that a certain subset in a topological group is closed
Of course, if singletons are closed in $X$ then $H$ is closed. But that is not what I am asking is it? In any case I clarified the post above.

comment Do we need additional assumptions for problem 3-37 (b) in Spivak´s calculus on Manifolds?
The definition of integral used in the problem involves partitions of unity and absolute convergence of a certain series, and may not coincide with the usual one. See p.65 of the book. Is that the integral you have in mind? Because you don´t mention partitions of unity at all.

comment Do we need additional assumptions for problem 3-37 (b) in Spivak´s calculus on Manifolds?
I stated the problem exactly as it is the book. I know there is no need for additional asumptions to show that the integral does not exist. Also given the fact that Spivak explicitly says "$f(x)=0$ for $x\not\in$ any $A_{n}$" I am inclined to think that he meant that $n\ge 1$.

comment Solving problem 3-29 in Spivak´s Calculus on Manifolds without using change of variables
I may be mistaken, but isn´t this solution basically a change of variables to cylindrical coordinates?
