Metric Half-Spaces

Description: This paper is a study of some of the basic properties of the metric half-space topology, a topology on a set which is derived from a metric on the set. In the first it is found that in a complete inner product space, the metric half-space topology is the same as one defined in terms of linear functionals on the space. In the second it is proven that in Rn the metric half-space topology is the same as the usual metric topology. In the third theorem it is shown that in a certain sense the nature of the metric halfspace topology generated by a norm on the space determines whether the norm is quadratic, that is to say, whether or not there exists an inner product on the space with the property that |x|^2=(x,x) for all x in the space.

On Lane's Integral

Description: The problem and purpose of this paper is to develop Lane's Integral in two-space, and then to expand these concepts into three-space and n-space. Lane's Integral can be used by both mathematicians and statisticians as one of the tools in the calculation of certain probabilities and expectations. The method of presentation is straightforward with the basic concepts of integration theory and Stieltjes Integral assumed.

Topological Groups

Description: In the study of groups and topological spaces, the properties of both are often encountered in one system. The following are common examples: groups with discrete topologies, the complex numbers with the usual topology, and matrix groups with metric topologies. The need for a study of how algebraic properties and topological properties affect one another when united and interrelated in one system soon becomes evident. Thus the purpose of this thesis is to study the interrelated group and topological space, the topological group.
