A question on the paragraph before 7.23 of Rudin's Real and complex analysis

  1. Mar 2, 2012 #1

    On page 150-151 of 3rd ed, before lemma 7.23, it says that under a stronger assumption that the function F is an open mapping, Lemma7.23 can be proved without using Brouwer fixed point theorem.

    I can't finish the proof avoiding Brouwer fixed point theorem.

    What I have done is prove that either F(B) is including B(0,1-epsilon) or F(B) is disjoint with B(0,1-epsilon), however, I cann't exclude the case that they are disjoint.

    Someone helps me?

    I have attached the screenshot of the paragraph involved.

    Thanks in advance!
