Topological fields #

A topological division ring is a topological ring whose inversion function is continuous at every non-zero element.

The induced topology on units of a topological ring. This is not a global instance since other topologies could be relevant. Instead there is a class induced_units asserting that something equivalent to this construction holds.

Prop

Asserts the topology on units is the induced topology.

Note: this is not always the correct topology. Another good candidate is the subspace topology of $R \times R$, with the units embedded via $u \mapsto (u, u^{-1})$. These topologies are not (propositionally) equal in general.

Prop

A topological division ring is a division ring with a topology where all operations are continuous, including inversion.

Instances

In this section, we show that units of a topological division ring endowed with the induced topology form a topological group. These are not global instances because one could want another topology on units. To turn on this feature, use:

This section is about affine homeomorphisms from a topological field 𝕜 to itself. Technically it does not require 𝕜 to be a topological field, a topological ring that happens to be a field is enough.

def affine_homeomorph {𝕜 : Type u_2} [field 𝕜] [topological_space 𝕜] [topological_ring 𝕜] (a b : 𝕜) (h : a 0) :
𝕜 ≃ₜ 𝕜

The map λ x, a * x + b, as a homeomorphism from 𝕜 (a topological field) to itself, when a ≠ 0.
