    Limit points-Topology

    Take Real Set, R, in the cofinite topology.

    Show that every sequence, whereno element repeats more than fini tely times, converges to every point in the real set.

    Find a sequence, which has a range that is infinite, which converges only to 0.
    Find a sequence, with infinite range, which does not have a limit.

    (3) Find a sequence, with infinite range, which does not have a limit.
    Let \{x_{n}\} n=1,2, .., \infty be a sequence in R

    For (1), every open set containing a point in \{x_{n}\} should contain all but finite elements of \{x_{n}\}, since an open set in a cofinite topology is defined as X\O is finite, where X is a set with a topological space T and O is an open set in a cofinite topology.
    For an arbitrary open set O containing a point \{x_{n}\} should contain all memebers of x_{n} for n>=N where N is a positive integer in a cofinite topology. That means, every sequence with distinct points (including elements repeated finite times) converges to every point in the real set in a cofinite topology.

    For (2), {1,1/2,1/3,...,1/n}, n=1,2,.., \infty.
    For (3), {1,2,3,....,n}, n=1,2,..., \infty.

    Thanks! However, For (2), the range of the sequence is finite so that is not a good example

    What is the problem with #2?
    The range of that sequence is \{ \tfrac{1}{n} | n\geq 1\}.
    This is an infinite set.
