Compact space

In mathematics, and more specifically in general topology, compactness is a property that generalizes the notion of a subset of Euclidean space being closed (that is, containing all its limit points) and bounded (that is, having all its points lie within some fixed distance of each other).

Contraction mapping

In mathematics, a contraction mapping, or contraction or contractor, on a metric space (M,d) is a function f from M to itself, with the property that there is some nonnegative real number 0\leq k such that for all x and y in M, The smallest such value of k is called the Lipschitz constant of f. Contractive maps are sometimes called Lipschitzian maps.
