Continuous and identification maps

(See attached file for full problem description with proper symbols and equation) --- Let be a surjective continuous map between topological spaces. Show that: a) If f is an identification mp, then for any pace Z and any map the composition is continuous if and only if g is continuous. b) If, for any space Z and any

Identification map

Break Even Point and Capital Budgeting

2. (Payback period, net present value, profitability index, and internal rate of return calculations) You are considering a project with an initial cash outlay of $160,000 and expected free cash flows of $40,000 at the end of each year for 6 years. The required rate of return for this project is 10 percent. a.) What is the pr


Compact spaces and path connectedness (see attachment). --- ? Show that if is a homeomorphism between topological spaces, then X is path connected if and only if Y is path connected. Using open cover definition: 1) is a compact subset? 2) Is a compact subset? ---

Connectedness, Continuity, Image, Antipodal Point and Borsuk-Ulam Theorem

Show that, if X is a connected topological space and is continuous, then the image f(X) is an n interval. Show that, if is a continuous map, then if given a,b,c in with a < b and c between f(a) and f(b), there exists at least one with a and f(x)=c Let be a continuous map. Show that there exists a point in the ci

Compact Set, Convergent Sequences and Subsequences and Accumulation Points

Prove that a set A, a subset of the real numbers, is compact if and only if every sequence {an} where an is in A for all n, has a convergent subsequence converging to a point in A. For the forward direction, I know that a compact set is closed and bounded, thus every sequence in A is bounded, and so has a convergent subsequen


Exactly how many minutes is it before eight o'clock, if 40 minutes ago, it was three times as many minutes past four o'clock?

Use double inegrals to find the volume of a region.

Find the volume of the following region in space: The first octant region bounded by the coordinate planes and the surfaces y=1-x^2, z=1-x^2. This question is #12 (section 9.3) in Advanced engineering mathmatics (8th ed.) by Kreyszig. This section deals with the evaluation of double integrals.

Use the cylindrical shell method to find volume of solid of revolution.

Show step by step work using cylindrical shell method to find the volume of the solid formed by revolving the given region about the y-axis. 22) the region bounded by the curve y=SQRT(x), the y-axis, and the line y=1. 24) the region bounded by the parabolas y=x^2, y=1-x^2, and y axis for x&#8805;0. 26) the region ins

Volumes of Solids of Revolution and Sketches of Bounded Regions

Sketch the given region and then find the volume of the solid whose base is the given region and which has the property that each cross section perpendicular to the x-axis is a square. 2) the region bounded by the x-axis and the semi circle y = SQRT (16-x^2). Sketch the given region and then find the volume of the solid

Clock problem involving angles

I am studying for a geometry test and am having trouble with a review problem at the end of the chapter. This is not homework. One problem asks the following: At 3:00, the hands of a clock form an angle of 90 degrees. To the nearest second, at what time will the hands of the clock next form a 90 degree angle? I figure t
