In explaining the topology of color spaces used in computer graphics, I was stuck on how to describe the topology of color maps as they are generally used: i.e. random. The other major topology used is that used for grey-scale images, similar to that of the integers. Is there a name for the topology of random color maps? Looking in my analysis book yields references to "discrete" and "trivial" topologies, where the trivial topology (in the set X of points) has only 0 (the null set) and X as open sets, and the discrete topology has all subsets of X as open sets. It seems as if these two topologies have the same properties (i.e. information) as in the two statements "everybody is different" and "everybody is the same". P.S. Please excuse any imprecise terminology. -- Ken Turkowski @ CADLINC, Palo Alto, CA UUCP: {amd,decwrl,dual,flairvax,nsc}!turtlevax!ken ARPA: turtlevax!ken@DECWRL.ARPA
