any set in R or C, which is discrete should be countable.(statement from the standard book)
is it correct?
what can you say about cantor set which is uncountable?
is it not discrete?
" More formally, discrete mathematics has been characterized as the branch of mathematics dealing with countable sets."
That is a quote from this webpage
That a quite different from a discrete topology or discrete metric.
What is you understanding of discrete?
no. every point of the cantor set is a limit point: no matter how small an open interval around any point of the cantor set you select, there are always other points of the cantor set within that interval. even though the cantor set appears to be a finely atomized "dust", the elements "accumulate" about the endpoints of the "outer thirds" we keep at each iteration.
