Hello there,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This might be probably a simple question, but my wondering was:

Is there any relation between the compactness and the connectedness of a topological space?

Let us consider the specific example (of interest for me) of a subdomain D of a 3D Riemannian manifold.

i) If D is compact, can I say that it is necessarily connected?

ii) If D is simply-connected, can I say that it is compact?

iii) If D is multi-connected, can I say that it is compact?

If one or another answer to these questions is negative, can you please provide me with an example?

Regards
