Topology

Is this picture show if the "inside & outside" is defined in topology?
Or this example isn't good?

I’m not sure what you’re asking. But you might like to look at the Jordan curve theorem. It turns out to be quite a subtle thing to define exactly what ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ mean.

A nice little explanation from a time when people actually bothered.

Thanks from topsquark

I have now read the definition of Jordan curve theorem.
Jordan curve theorem is curve in a plain that not intersect itself and close (the ending point is also the starting point).
So the first isn't a Jordan curve and the second it is a Jordan curve.

That's right. Topologically, any figure equivalent to the circle is a Jordan curve. If you want, you can try prove the Jordan curve theorem using the intermediate value theorem for say, $|x| + |y| = 1$.

Can you give more directions and hints: How to prove the intermediate value theorem for:
|x|+|y|=1.
I need a some directions...

As stated this does not make sense. The intermediate value theorem says that if $X$ is a connected topological space and $f: X \to \mathbb{R}$ is continuous, then $f(X)$ is an interval.

This does not seem to have anything to do with what you are asking about in this thread.

I was trying to provide an exercise with which the OP could prove the JCT for a special case using the IVT.

As for what exactly is being asked in the thread, I've no idea.
