pcardunegpaci: I wanted to prove that the space of all julia sets are continuous... but I haven't gotten into topology quite yet00:10
gpacipcardune: And I kind of hope I'm *never* that into topology....00:11
pcarduneyeah... no kidding00:11
gpaciDo they still start with topology in introductory courses to real analysis?00:13
gpaciOpen sets, closed sets, that kind of thing?00:13

gpaciHave you done complex analysis already?00:14
gpaciThe only thing I know about it is that *everything* has roots.00:15
pcardunei just got done with "intro to higher math" which is just a proof class with topics in number and set theory00:16
gpaciI never did a whole real analysis class; they just seemed to think it was important00:16
