*This book is based on notes from a course on set theory and metric spaces taught by Edwin Spanier, and also incorporates with his permission numerous exercises from those notes. The volume includes an Appendix that helps bridge the gap between metric and topological spaces, a Selected Bibliography, and an Index. There are many informal comments scattered between the formal development of theorems and these are done in a light and pleasant style.*

## Set Theory and Metric Spaces

Irving Kaplansky March 22, — June 25, was a mathematician , college professor , author , and musician.

Kaplansky or "Kap" as his friends and colleagues called him was born in Toronto , Ontario , Canada, to Polish-Jewish immigrants; [3] [4] his father worked as a tailor, and his mother ran a grocery and, eventually, a chain of bakeries. He attended the University of Toronto as an undergraduate and finished first in his class for three consecutive years.

After receiving his Ph. He was professor of mathematics at the University of Chicago from to , and Chair of the department from to Kaplansky was also an accomplished amateur musician. He had perfect pitch , studied piano until the age of 15, earned money in high school as a dance band musician, taught Tom Lehrer , [20] and played in Harvard's jazz band in graduate school.

He also had a regular program on Harvard's student radio station. After moving to the University of Chicago, he stopped playing for two decades, but then returned to music as an accompanist for student-run Gilbert and Sullivan productions and as a calliope player in football game parades. One of those compositions, A Song About Pi , is a melody based on assigning notes to the first 14 decimal places of pi , and has occasionally been performed by his daughter, singer-songwriter Lucy Kaplansky.

Kaplansky made major contributions to group theory , ring theory , the theory of operator algebras and field theory and created the Kaplansky density theorem , Kaplansky's game and Kaplansky conjecture. He published more than articles and 11 mathematical books. Kaplansky was the doctoral supervisor of 55 students including notable mathematicians Hyman Bass , Susanna S.

Rosenberg , Judith D. Sally , and Harold Widom. He has over academic descendants , including many through his academic grandchildren David J. Foulis who studied with Kaplansky at the University of Chicago before completing his doctorate under the supervision of Kaplansky's student Fred Wright, Jr. Arlen Brown, who had been jointly supervised by Kaplansky and Paul Halmos. He was the plenary speaker at the British Mathematical Colloquium in Steele Prize. Herstein: —— Matters mathematical.

This is a book that could profitably be read by many graduate students or by seniors in strong major programs There are many informal comments scattered between the formal development of theorems and these are done in a light and pleasant style. There is a complete proof of the equivalence of the axiom of choice, Zorn's Lemma, and well-ordering, as well as a discussion of the use of these concepts. There is also an interesting discussion of the continuum problem

Но в них была только смерть. Смерть ее веры в. Любовь и честь были забыты. Мечта, которой он жил все эти годы, умерла. Он никогда не получит Сьюзан Флетчер. Никогда. Внезапная пустота, разверзшаяся вокруг него, была невыносима.

Веспа внезапно взбодрилась. Под колесами быстро побежала авеню Луис Монтоно.

Чатрукьян вдруг обрел прежнюю уверенность. - Цепная мутация, сэр. Я проделал анализ и получил именно такой результат - цепную мутацию.

- Позвони коммандеру. Он тебе все объяснит. - Сердце его колотилось.

*Иными словами - кто будет охранять Агентство национальной безопасности, пока мы охраняем мир. Это было любимое изречение, которым часто пользовался Танкадо.*

Халохот пробирался между деревьями с пистолетом в руке. Деревья были очень старыми, с высокими голыми стволами. Даже до нижних веток было не достать, а за неширокими стволами невозможно спрятаться.

Сьюзан не любила бывать в шифровалке в неурочные часы, поскольку в таких случаях неизменно чувствовала себя запертой в клетке с гигантским зверем из научно-фантастического романа. Она ускорила шаги, чтобы побыстрее оказаться в кабинете шефа. К рабочему кабинету Стратмора, именуемому аквариумом из-за стеклянных стен, вела узкая лестница, поднимавшаяся по задней стене шифровалки. Взбираясь по решетчатым ступенькам, Сьюзан смотрела на массивную дубовую дверь кабинета, украшенную эмблемой АНБ, на которой был изображен могучий орел, терзающий когтями старинную отмычку. За этой дверью находился один из самых великих людей, которых ей довелось знать.
