T. Hu, Elements of General Topology, chap. 1 (San Francisco: Holden-Day, 1964). J. L. Kelley, General Topology, pp. 1-13 (Princeton: Van Nostrand, 1955). The presentation of this chapter is work-a-day. We shall use the language of set theory in every definition and argument ahead, but many fascinating questions have been ignored here (remember, for example, the remarks we made concerning the equality of sets and the axiom of choice). Certainly this fundamental language of mathematics can be made more rigorous by introducing a system of axioms; there is a long history of the development of such systems.

The "inverse" (or "converse'') of the relation R is R = {{b,a): (a,b)eR}y and if D C A, then R(D) = {,b: there exists dtD such that (d,b) £R). Show that (it - 1 )" 1 = R, {R O sy1 = S" 1 O R-\ and (R o S) o T = R o (S o T) for all relation K, S, and T for which the composites are defined. If / is a function, f'1 is a relation; what is f ^ o f ? Is R o S(D) = R[S(D)]? Do relations preserve unions or intersections? That is, is R(D U Df) = R(D) U R(D'\ or is R(D n D') = R(D) n fl{LK)? Prove that a relation R is an equivalence iff (A U fi"1 U R o R) c R.

We picture our torus group as a circle of circles; through each point of a circle along the rim (of the absent wheel) goes a circle through the spokes (of the wheel), Exercise N REFERENCES AND FURTHER TOPICS The use of group theory as a language is widespread in modern mathematics, perhaps second only to set theory. The study of the theory for its own sake is, of course, a large and important part of the work of today's mathematicians. The exposition of this chapter is only skeletal; it contains the minimum needed for our work in topology.
