## Why discrete space is totally disconnected?

Combining the above two facts, every discrete uniform or metric space is totally bounded if and only if it is finite. Every discrete metric space is bounded. Every discrete space is first-countable; it is moreover second-countable if and only if it is countable. Every discrete space is totally disconnected.

**Is the discrete topology disconnected?**

Note that points are open in the discrete topology, which means that if S⊂X contains two or more points, you can write S as the union of its points, which are open and obviously disjoint →S will be disconnected. This means the only connected components will be points →X is totally disconnected.

### Which of the following is totally disconnected space?

An important example of a totally disconnected space is the Cantor set, which is homeomorphic to the set of p-adic integers.

**Are the Irrationals totally disconnected?**

Not only are the Rationals disconnected but they are totally disconnected. Every single Rational qi gives rise to a disconnection (−∞,qi),(qi,+∞) so that connected components are singletons. Any neighborhood of the Irrationals can be disconnected in this way.

#### How do I show space completely disconnected?

Every discrete space is totally disconnected. Let X be a discrete space. Let x,y∈X, x≠y, then A={x} and Ac=X∖{x} are open subsets of X such that x∈A, y∈Ac. Since {A,Ac} is a disconnection of X, then X is totally disconnected.

**Is lower limit topology totally disconnected?**

The reason is that every open interval can be written as a (countably infinite) union of half-open intervals. are also clopen. This shows that the Sorgenfrey line is totally disconnected.

## When a topological space is disconnected?

A topological space X is said to be disconnected if it is the union of two disjoint non-empty open sets. Otherwise, X is said to be connected. A subset of a topological space is said to be connected if it is connected under its subspace topology.

**What is discrete and indiscrete?**

set X is called the discrete topology on X, and the collection consisting only of the empty set and X itself forms the indiscrete, or trivial, topology on X. A given topological space gives rise to other related topological spaces.

### Why rationals is not connected?

Connected set. A set that cannot be separated into two sets U and V which have no points in common and which are such that no accumulation point of U belongs to V and no accumulation point of V belongs to U. The set of all rational numbers is not connected.

**Is R totally disconnected?**

R with usual topology is not totally disconnected. R with upper limit topology generated by open-closed intervals (a,b] is totally disconnected. Every totally disconnected space is a Hausdorff space. The components of a totally disconnected space are its singleton subsets.

#### Is the Sorgenfrey plane separable?

The Sorgenfrey plane is also an example of a separable space, but admitting an uncountable discrete subspace (which is thus not separable), showing that separability is not a hereditary property.

**What is the difference between discrete and continuous data?**

If discrete data are values placed into separate boxes, you can think of continuous data as values placed along an infinite number line. Continuous variables, unlike discrete ones, can potentially be measured with an ever-increasing degree of precision.

## What is the difference between totally disconnected and totally separated spaces?

Unfortunately in the literature (for instance ), totally disconnected spaces are sometimes called hereditarily disconnected while the terminology totally disconnected is used for totally separated spaces. The following are examples of totally disconnected spaces:

**What is a continuous image of a totally disconnected space?**

Continuous images of totally disconnected spaces are not necessarily totally disconnected, in fact, every compact metric space is a continuous image of the Cantor set. A locally compact Hausdorff space has small inductive dimension 0 if and only if it is totally disconnected.

### What is a totally disconnected space with an inductive dimension 0?

Totally disconnected spaces are T 1 spaces, since singletons are closed. Continuous images of totally disconnected spaces are not necessarily totally disconnected, in fact, every compact metric space is a continuous image of the Cantor set. A locally compact Hausdorff space has small inductive dimension 0 if and only if it is totally disconnected.
