Did you know? A complete metric space is a metric space in which every Cauchy sequence converges.

Complete metric space: A metric space, in which every Cauchy sequence is convergent, is a complete metric space. Did you know? Examples include the real numbers with the usual metric, the complex numbers, finitedimensional real and complex vector spaces, (and also the space of squareintegrable functions on the unit interval L˛([0,1]), and the padic numbers). Let us notice however that Q is not a complete metric space, this leads thus to study an extension of Q to a completed space of Q.

Did you know? The completeness of the real numbers is often formulated in terms of the leastupperbound property: every set of real numbers that is bounded above has a real least upper bound. It turns out that this is equivalent to the condition that every real Cauchy sequence is convergent.

Let X be a metric space with metric d. Given a function Did you know? Banach’s fixedpoint theorem states that if X is a complete metric space, any contraction mapping f on X has a unique fixed point, i.e. there exists exactly one point p ∊ X such that

Did you know? Stefan Banach (1892–1945) was a Polish mathematician.

Did you know? Baire’s theorem for metric spaces states that if X is a complete metric space and is a countable collection of nowhere dense subsets of X, is everywhere dense in X. (A subset of a metric space X is nowhere dense iff the interior of its closure is empty; it is everywhere dense iff its closure is the whole space X.) Did you also know? René Baire (1874–1932) was a French mathematician.

Did you know? Any metric space can be “completed”. In a metric space X with metric d, let us say that two Cauchy sequences and are equivalent iff
