TOPOLOGY Question I. Show that defines a metric on IR2 • Question 2. Let (X, g) be a metric space. Show that for all x, y, z EX le(x, z) - g(y, z) I :S e(x, y). Question 3. Let A be a non-empty set of real numbers with infimum (greatest lower bound) b. Prove that there is a sequence, (xn LeN> in A whose limit is b. Question 4. Let p be a prime number. For each n E N* := N \ { 0}, let Vp ( n) be the exponent of p in the prime factorisation of n. This is the highest power of P which divides n. In other words, vp(n) = j if and only if (i) pi divides n, but (ii) pi+l docs not divide n. For each x E Q* := Q \ {O}, there are m, n EN* with Ix! := m. Define n with !xi := 􀂲 as above. Finally, define A : ,n, X ,n, -► ]Ro+ , (x,y) f---7 {Q ( ) "'7' ",! ",! p-Vp X-y Show that (Q, dp) is a metric space. if X = y if X # y. This is the p-adic metric on (Ql, which is important in number theory. TOPOLOGY Question 5 Let (X, e) be a metric space.
