Tietze extension theorem #

In this file we prove a few version of the Tietze extension theorem. The theorem says that a continuous function s → ℝ defined on a closed set in a normal topological space Y can be extended to a continuous function on the whole space. Moreover, if all values of the original function belong to some (finite or infinite, open or closed) interval, then the extension can be chosen so that it takes values in the same interval. In particular, if the original function is a bounded function, then there exists a bounded extension of the same norm.

The proof mostly follows https://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/Tietze+extension+theorem. We patch a small gap in the proof for unbounded functions, see exists_extension_forall_exists_le_ge_of_closed_embedding.

Implementation notes #

We first prove the theorems for a closed embedding e : X → Y of a topological space into a normal topological space, then specialize them to the case X = s : set Y, e = coe.

One step in the proof of the Tietze extension theorem. If e : C(X, Y) is a closed embedding of a topological space into a normal topological space and f : X →ᵇ ℝ is a bounded continuous function, then there exists a bounded continuous function g : Y →ᵇ ℝ of the norm ‖g‖ ≤ ‖f‖ / 3 such that the distance between g ∘ e and f is at most (2 / 3) * ‖f‖.
