**Normal family**— In mathematics, with special application to complex analysis, a normal family is a pre compact family of continuous functions. Informally, this means that the functions in the family are not exceedingly numerous or widely spread out; rather, they … Wikipedia**Totally bounded space**— In topology and related branches of mathematics, a totally bounded space is a space that can be covered by finitely many subsets of any fixed size (where the meaning of size depends on the given context). The smaller the size fixed, the more… … Wikipedia**Metric space**— In mathematics, a metric space is a set where a notion of distance (called a metric) between elements of the set is defined. The metric space which most closely corresponds to our intuitive understanding of space is the 3 dimensional Euclidean… … Wikipedia**Spectral theory of compact operators**— In functional analysis, compact operators are linear operators that map bounded sets to precompact ones. Compact operators acting on a Hilbert space H is the closure of finite rank operators in the uniform operator topology.
