comment If a product of relatively prime integers is an $n$th power, then each is an $n$th power
Have you considered the prime factorizations of $a$, $b$, and $c$?

comment No prime number between number and square of number
Bertrand's postulate guarantees the existence of a prime between $n$ and $2n$ for all integers $n > 1$. Therefore there are no non-trivial examples of the phenomenon you describe.

comment Why do we need to prove $e^{u+v} = e^ue^v$?
@bobobobo In that case, we have no a priori information about the function $e^x$, and we've got to establish its basic properties from the definition provided.

It's also quite common to define $ln(x)$ as the integral $\int_1^a \frac{1}{x} \, dx$, which might be the case here.

How is the function $e^x$ defined in the text?

comment Topology of the power set
@t.spero: Xiaochuan is using the product topology on $2^{[0,1]}$. (The reference to Tycohoff's theorem is a clue!) More information is available on wikipedia. In concrete terms, if your base set is $S$, open sets on $\mathcal{P}(S)$ are generated by the sets $\mathcal{U}(F, G)$ for finite sets $F$ and $G \in S$, where $\mathcal{U}(F,G)$ is defined to be $\{U \subset S : F \subset U \text{ and } G \cap U = \emptyset\}$. (I believe I have that right, but I am also tired, so no guarantees.)
