THIS FILE IS SYNCHRONIZED WITH MATHLIB4. Any changes to this file require a corresponding PR to mathlib4.

This file is about thickened indicators of sets in (pseudo e)metric spaces. For a decreasing sequence of thickening radii tending to 0, the thickened indicators of a closed set form a decreasing pointwise converging approximation of the indicator function of the set, where the members of the approximating sequence are nonnegative bounded continuous functions.

## Main definitions #

• thickened_indicator_aux δ E: The δ-thickened indicator of a set E as an unbundled ℝ≥0∞-valued function.
• thickened_indicator δ E: The δ-thickened indicator of a set E as a bundled bounded continuous ℝ≥0-valued function.

## Main results #

• For a sequence of thickening radii tending to 0, the δ-thickened indicators of a set E tend pointwise to the indicator of closure E.
• thickened_indicator_aux_tendsto_indicator_closure: The version is for the unbundled ℝ≥0∞-valued functions.
• thickened_indicator_tendsto_indicator_closure: The version is for the bundled ℝ≥0-valued bounded continuous functions.
noncomputable def thickened_indicator_aux {α : Type u_1} (δ : ) (E : set α) :

The δ-thickened indicator of a set E is the function that equals 1 on E and 0 outside a δ-thickening of E and interpolates (continuously) between these values using inf_edist _ E.

thickened_indicator_aux is the unbundled ℝ≥0∞-valued function. See thickened_indicator for the (bundled) bounded continuous function with ℝ≥0-values.

As the thickening radius δ tends to 0, the δ-thickened indicator of a set E (in α) tends pointwise (i.e., w.r.t. the product topology on α → ℝ≥0∞) to the indicator function of the closure of E.

This statement is for the unbundled ℝ≥0∞-valued functions thickened_indicator_aux δ E, see thickened_indicator_tendsto_indicator_closure for the version for bundled ℝ≥0-valued bounded continuous functions.

As the thickening radius δ tends to 0, the δ-thickened indicator of a set E (in α) tends pointwise to the indicator function of the closure of E.

Note: This version is for the bundled bounded continuous functions, but the topology is not the topology on α →ᵇ ℝ≥0. Coercions to functions α → ℝ≥0 are done first, so the topology instance is the product topology (the topology of pointwise convergence).
