Math 321 Handout 8 If 17 b are real numbers with a g b then the closed interval 07b from a to b is the set of real numbers 90 such that a g 90 g b The length of this interval is b 7 a Closed intervals are clearly closed subsets of the real line with respect to the standard metric Suppose that 17127 is a sequence of closed intervals in the real line such that 71 Q I for every j Z 1 Let aj b be the endpoints of 7 so that aj g b in particular The hypothesis that ajdrhbj l Q aj7bj implies that aj g aj1 and bi g b for every j Z 1 This implies in turn that aijl for all positive integers j l For ifj g l7 then aj g a g bl and ifj 2 l7 then aj g b g bl Let A be the set of the as Since aj g b1 for every j Z 17 A has an upper bound7 and hence a suprernurn Each E is an upper bound for A7 and thus supA g E for every l 2 1 Of course the suprernurn of A is an upper bound for A7 which is to say that aj g supA for every j Z 1 It follows that supA E I for every j Z 1 Math 321 Handout 8b Fix a positive integer 71 If 11 an b1 bn are real numbers such that a g b for i 17 n then the corresponding cell is the set C Q R consisting of ac x1 xn such that a g 90 g b 1 g i g n One can show that cells satisfy the limit point property and are compact as subsets of R equipped with the Euclidean metric in much the same way as for closed intervals in the real line There are two main changes in the argument as follows First if C is a cell in R associated to the real numbers 11 an b1 bn as above then the diameter of C or maximal distance between two elements of C is equal to 7L 7 102 i1 Just as an interval is the union of two subintervals of half the length a cell C Q R is the union of 2 cells of one half the diameter of C Second if C1C2 is a sequence of cells in R such that CH1 Q C for every j Z 1 then there is a t E R such that t E Lil Cj This is basically the same as the one dimensional case repeated 71 times for the 71 components of t
