    Covering Spaces: Algebraic Topology problem
    ________________________________________
    Assume X and Y are arcwise connected and locally arcwise connected,
    X is compact Hausdorff, and Y is Hausdorff. Let f: X-->Y be a local homeomorphism. Prove that (X,f) is a covering space.

    Solution:

    an arc connecting two points and of a topological space is not simply (like a path) a continuous function such that and , but must also have a continuous inverse function, i.e., that it is a homeomorphism between and the image of f.
