Asymptotic compactness in topological spaces

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The omega limit sets plays a fundamental role to construct global attractors for topological semi-dynamical systems with continuous time or discrete time. Therefore, it is important to know when omega limit sets become nonempty compact sets. The purpose of this paper is to understand the mechanism under which a given net of subsets of topological spaces is compact in the asymptotic sense. For this purpose, we introduce the notion of asymptotic compactness for nets of subsets and study the connection with the compactness of the limit sets. In this paper, for a given net of nonempty subsets, we prove that the asymptotic compactness and the property that the limit set is a nonempty compact set to which the net converges from above are equivalent in uniformizable spaces. We also study the sequential version of the notion of asymptotic compactness by introducing the notion of sequentiality of directed sets.
