The set X forms a Hamel basis for L(X), and the map i is a topological embedding [3,10].
"The different topological embedding of these regions into the brain network could make it easier for smarter persons to differentiate between important and irrelevant information - which would be advantageous for many cognitive challenges," proposed principle investigator Ulrike Basten.
Assume that the monomorphism [[??].sub.X,Y] : FP(X) [right arrow] FP(Y) extending the identity mapping [e.sub.X,Y] : X [right arrow] Y is a topological embedding. Therefore, it is easy to see that we can identify the group FP(X) with the subgroup FP(X, Y) of FP(Y) generated by the set X.
