It is not clear sometimes what should be subcat and what is supcat, I think for math it is reasonabe to assume, that all theorems of subcat should be in supcat. Sometimes it is bit contrintutive: metric geometry seems more special than general topology, but every theorem in gentop is a theorem in metric geometry, but not othere way arround Tosha 08:09, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)

I think that's the wrong way of looking at it. The question should be, is a general topologist necessarily a student of metric geometry? And the answer is, of course not. This cat absolutely does not belong in Category:Metric geometry. --Trovatore 06:06, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

"general topology or point set topology is that branch of topology which studies properties of general topological spaces" in the category description is wrong. General topology studies also proximity spaces, uniform spaces, and also contains pointfree topology. Please correct the description of the category. --VictorPorton (talk) 17:07, 1 August 2011 (UTC)


I saw that "Topological Vector Spaces" is a subcat. I thought why not "Topological Groups"? I searched for it - and found it in a perfectly logical place - In the "Toplogigcal Algebra" category. I argue that "Topological Vector Spaces" should not be a subcat here - or that "Topological Groups" (rings etc) should be subcats here as well.

Better yet: Make "Toplogigcal Algebra" a subcat here. YohanN7 (talk) 22:56, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
