Characteristic of a connected, locally compact, Hausdorff space X which is locally connected.

Q. Prove that a connected, locally compact, Hausdorff space X is locally connected if and only if for each compact subset K and each open set U containing K, all but a finite number of components of X-...

Locally connected and connected

Let X be locally connected, $A \subset X$ arbitrary. Let $S \subset A$ be connected and open in A. Show $S=U\cap A$ where $U$ is connected and open. I think that I have solved already but I never ...

Is connected component open?

There is a theorem that:A space is locally connected iff each connected components of an open set is open. But recently I had seen to prove That each connected component is closed. Connected ...

Local connectedness is preserved under retractions

I want to show that if $X$ is a locally connected topological space, $A\subseteq X$ is a subspace and $f:X \rightarrow A$ is continuous such that $f|_{A} = Id_{A}$, then $A$ must be locally connected ...

Example of a topological space that is connected, not locally connected and not path connected

I know that "The topologist's sine curve" is an example of a topological space that is connected, not locally connected and not path connected. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topologist%27s_sine_curve ...

$\prod_{j \in J} X_{j}$ is locally connected if, and only if, each $X_{j}$ is locally connected …

I do not understand two parts of the converse of the following theorem: Let $\lbrace X_{j}: j \in J \rbrace$ be a family of non-empty topological spaces. The product space $\prod_{j \in J} X_{j}$ ...

Not locally connected but path connected particular example

Show an example of a path connected topological space that it's not locally connected. Example (by William Eliot): In $\mathbb R^2$, draw lines from $(0,0)$ to $(1,q)$ for all rational $q$ in $[0,1]$...

Any example of a connected space that is not locally connected?

A topological space $X$ is said to be locally connected at a point $x \in X$ if, for every neighborhood $U$ of $x$ (i.e. open set $U$ such that $x \in U$), there exists a connected neighborhood $V$ of ...

Locally connected implies disjoint union of open connected sets

I'm struggling with the following question (from an introductory analysis course): A metric space $E$ is said to be locally connected if for all $x \in E$, there exists $r > 0$ such that $B_r(x)$ ...

The idea of weakly locally connected (connected im kleinen) points, and counterexamples.

I've recently had the chance to learn about the weak local connectedness (connected im kleinen) property, of points in topological spaces. Also, I've been trying to construct a space which has some ...

The Hahn-Mazurkiewicz Theorem for non-metric spaces

I am looking for a yes or no answer to the following question, though if there is a simple explanation I'd like that as well: If $X$ is any continuous image (not necessarily metrizable) of $[0,1]$, ...

Is there a name for local connectedness except you use punctured neigborhoods instead?

Take the definition for a locally connected space: A space is locally connected at $c$ if for every neighborhood of $c$ contains an connected open neighborhood of $c$. A space is loccally connected ...

Set of Points where X Fails to be Locally Connected

I am stuck on a problem! Suppose $X$ is a compact, connected metric space. Let $L(X)$ be the set of points at which $X$ is not locally connected (here, locally connected means the point has a local ...
Set of All Points at which $X$ is Locally Connected
The following question came to me as I was reading about local connectedness: Let $$S := \{x \in X \mid X \text{ is locally connected at } x \},$$ where $X$ is some topological space. Is $S$ ...
Is the property of local connectedness or local path-connectedness invariant under homotopy equivalence? I.e. If $X,Y$ are homotopically equivalent Hausdorff topological spaces such that $X$ is ...
