### What's the interior of $R^{\infty}$ in the $R^{\omega}$ with the box topology and the production topology?

What's the interior of $R^{\infty}$ in the $R^{\omega}$ with the box topology and the production topology? With $R^{\infty}$ being the set of all eventually zero sequences. About the question in Prob. ...

### Box topology and a non-continuous function

I'm having trouble understanding box topologies on infinite spaces. I'm asked to prove that the function f going from ([0,1], standard top.) to ([0,1]^N, box top.) is not continuous. This function ...

### dimension-set for all Julia-fractals/Mandelbrot set

You know the Julia-sets have all different not integer dimensions. I think it would be very interesting to have a map like the Mandelbrot-set, that shows the magnitude of the dimension of the Julia-...

### Is $\mathbb R^J$ normal in the box topology when $J$ is uncountable?

Question: Is $\mathbb R^J$ normal in the box topology when $J$ is uncountable? I know $\mathbb R^J$ is not normal in the product topology, see "Proof" that $\mathbb{R}^J$ is not normal ...

### Showing the $\ell^2$ topology is different from the Box topology

Let $X$ be the subset of $\Bbb{R}^\omega$ all of sequences $y = (y_i)$ for which $\sum y_i^2 < \infty$. Then $d(x,y) = \left[ \sum_{i=1}^\infty (x_i-y_i)^2 \right]^{1/2}$ defines a metric on $X$, ...

### Prove that $\mathbb R_l$ $\times$ $\mathbb R_l$ given the box topology has a countable dense subset.

Let $\mathbb R_l$ be $\mathbb R$ given the lower limit topology, i.e. the topology generated by $\{[a, b)\subseteq \mathbb R|a<b\}$. Prove that $\mathbb R_l$$\times$$\mathbb R_l$ given the box ...

### Projection map for the product, uniform and box topologies

That the canonical projection map (from say $\mathbb{R}^\mathbb{N}$ to $\mathbb{R}$) is continuous for all three topologies is straightforward. But is it also open for the uniform and box topologies? (...

### Which Maps are Box-Continuous?

The box topology on the set $\mathbb R^\infty$ is defined to have sub-basis of sets $U_1 \times U_2 \times \ldots$ for each $U_i \subset \mathbb R$ open. Observe this is different from the product ...

### Why are box topology and product topology different on infinite products of topological spaces?

Why are box topology and product topology different on infinite products of topological spaces ? I'm reading Munkres's topology. He mentioned that fact but I can't see why it's true that they are ...

### Difference between the behavior of a sequence and a function in product and box topology on same set

Let $\prod_{\alpha \in J} X_{\alpha}$ is the product of typologies. Consider product topology on the set. Then any function $f : A \rightarrow \prod_{\alpha \in J} X_{\alpha}$ will be continuous on ...

### Tychonoff Theorem in the box topology

A short question: Why does not the Tychonoff theorem (the arbitrary product of compact spaces is compact) hold in the box topology? I don't know how to show that there is no finite sub-cover of any ...
### $[0,1]^{\mathbb{N}}$ with respect to the box topology is not compact
could anyone help to show that $[0,1]^{\mathbb{N}}$ with respect to the box topology is not compact? Thank you!
In point-set topology, one always learns about the box topology: the topology on an infinite product $X = \prod_{i \in I} X_i$ generated by sets of the form $U = \prod_{i \in I} U_i$, where \$U_i \...
