Gerald A. Edgar, "Measure, Topology, and Fractal Geometry", (Springer Verlag, New York, 1990) I am reading the above text and doing the exercises. My efforts to date have brought me to p.68. I am stymied by a proof shown for Propostion 2.4.7 Is anyone who has read the Edgar text willing to anwer or to discuss difficulties I encounter in my reading? That's what I would call real "Math help". I live about 30 miles from a university that has a math department.

I am no longer "stymied" by Prop. 2.4.7 I cast the text aside and found my own proof, which is more direct and does not involve a confusing application of HeineBorel . Thanks for your interest. I would still like to correspond with someone who is reading the subject text.
