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

Easy question about connectedness. I have from Munkres that the finite Cartesian product of connected sets is connected. How about for simply connected sets? This seems like a natural extension of the theorem. Would you say I need to offer a proof? Simply connectedness seems to require some algebraic topology that I am not really familiar with.

Thanks,

Mike
