Compact sets and covers

Are compact topological spaces covers of themselves?

How would I prove this if its true?

Re: Compact sets and covers

lu5t,

What is your definition of 'cover'? Are you talking about covering spaces in the sense of a locally path-connected and path-connected Hausdorff space?

Re: Compact sets and covers

Looks like we're all wondering about some terminology...

lu5t,

I hope you will continue to post your questions in topology, we don't mean to discourage you from this by our joking around.
