Proof. Let κ = |S| and λ = sup{|X| : X ∈ S}. We have S = {Xα : α < κ} and for each α < κ, we choose an enumeration Xα = {aα,β : β < λα }, where λα ≤ λ. Again we have a projection (α, β) → aα,β of κ × λ onto S, and so | S| ≤ κ · λ. In particular, the union of ℵα sets, each of cardinality ℵα , has cardinality ℵα . 3. Every ℵα+1 is a regular cardinal. Proof. This is because otherwise ωα+1 would be the union of at most ℵα sets of cardinality at most ℵα . Using the Axiom of Choice in Mathematics In algebra and point set topology, one often uses the following version of the Axiom of Choice.

Let f : R → R. Show that the set of all x at which f is continuous is a Gδ set. 17. (i) N × N is homeomorphic to N . (ii) N ω is homeomorphic to N . 18. , s ∈ T such that there is no t ∈ T with s ⊂ t. The map F → TF is a one-to-one correspondence between closed sets in N and sequential trees without maximal nodes. 19. Every perfect Polish space has a closed subset homeomorphic to the Cantor space. 20. Every Polish space is homeomorphic to a Gδ subspace of the Hilbert cube. 5 are due to Cantor. The construction of real numbers by completion of the rationals is due to Dedekind .

N ∈ N , are dense open sets of reals, then the intersection D = n=0 Dn is dense in R. Proof. We show that D intersects every nonempty open interval I. First note that for each n, D0 ∩ . . ∩ Dn is dense and open. Let Jk : k ∈ N be an enumeration of rational intervals. Let I0 = I, and let, for each n, In+1 = Jk = (qk , rk ), where k is the least k such that the closed interval [qk , rk ] is included in In ∩ Dn . Then a ∈ D ∩ I, where a = limk→∞ qk . 9. 2) (i) S ∈ S, (ii) if X ∈ S and Y ∈ S then X ∪ Y ∈ S, (iii) if X ∈ S then S − X ∈ S.
