Is it fair to say, when talking about spacetime with a given metric, it would be redundant to state that the associated set has the metric topology placed on it. In other words, let ##M## be a set, ##O## the metric topology, ##\nabla## a connection, ##g## a metric, and ##T## be the direction of time, then(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

##(M,O,\nabla,g,T)=(M,\nabla,g,T)##

Edit: I suppose what I'm asking is, does the metric ##g## induce the metric topology?
