What are you expected to do to show a set is open?
I ask because 1b is often used as a basic open set.
Therefore, you must be using some other definition.
How can you prove sets
1---------
how can u prove the following sets are are open,
a. the left half place {z: Re z > 0 };
b. the open disk D(z0,r) for any and r > 0.
2---------
a. how can u prove the following set is a closed set:
_
D(z0, r)
MY WORKING SO FAR
1.. could you please give me a hint on how to start a and b as ive researched but still havent got much of an idea. once i get a little hint then ill try solving and show you my working..
2a.
--------
if D(z0,r) is closed, this implies C\S (the compliment) is open. Therefore, for any z not belonging to the set, there is an e > 0 such that D(z,e) C C\S. This further implies z is not a limit point of S which means that it is a closed set?
is this correct proof for 2a??
