Abstract: The aim of this paper is to introduce two new classes of functions, namely slightly -continuous

functions and totally -continuous functions and study its properties.

Mathematics Subject Classification: 54A05

Keywords and phrases: -open set, -closed set, slightly -continuous functions and totally -continuous

functions .

1. Introduction

Continuous functions in topology found a valuable place in the applications of mathematics as it has

applications to engineering especially to digital signal processing and neural networks. Topologists studied

weaker and stronger forms of continuous functions in topology using the sets stronger and weaker than open and

closed sets.

In 1997, Slightly continuity was introduced by Jain[3] and has been applied for semi-open and pre open

sets by Nour[5] and Baker[1] respectively. Recently, S.Pious Missier and J.Arul Jesti have introduced the

concept of -open sets[6], and introduced some more functions in -open sets. Continuing this work we shall

introduce a new functions called slightly -continuous functions and totally -continuous functions and

investigated their properties in terms of composition and restriction. Also we establish the relationship between

slightly -continuous functions and totally -continuous functions with other functions.

II. Preliminaries

Throughout this paper (X, ), (Y, ) and (Z, ) (or X,Y and Z) represent non-empty topological spaces on

which no separation axioms are assumed unless explicitly stated. For a subset A of a space (X, ), C(A) and

(A) denote the -closure and the -interior of A respectively.

Definition 2.1: A subset A of a topological space (X,) is called a -open set [6] if there is an open set U in X

such that UA sCl(U). The collection of all Sg -open sets in (X, ) is denoted by O(X,).

Definition 2.2: A subset A of a topological space (X,) is called a -closed set[6] if X\A is -open. The

collection of all -closed sets in (X, ) is denoted by (X,).

Theorem 2.3 [6]:Every open set is Sg -open and every closed set is Sg -closed set

Definition 2.4: A topological space X, is said to be - space [7] if every -open set of X is open in X.

Definition 2.5: A topological space X, is said to be -locally indiscrete space [8] if every -open set of

X is closed in X.

Definition 2.6: A function f: X Y is said to be contra- -continuous [8] if the inverse image of every open

set in Y is -closed in X.

Definition 2.7: A function f: (X, ) (Y, ) is called a contra-continuous [2] if f 1 (O) is closed in (X, ) for

every open subset O of (Y, ).

Definition 2.8: A mapping f: X Y is said to be -continuous [7] if the inverse image of every open set in Y

is -open in X.

Defintion 2.9: A map f: X Y is said to be -irresolute[7] if the inverse image of every Sg -open set in Y is

-open in X.

Definition 2.10: A mapping f: X Y is said to be strongly -continuous [7]if the inverse image of every open set in Y is open in X.

Definition 2.11: A mapping f: X Y is said to be perfectly -continuous [7]if the inverse image of every open set in Y is open and closed in X.

Definition 2.12: A function f: X Y is called slightly continuous [3] if the inverse image of every clopen set

in Y is open in X.

Definition 3.1: A function f: (X, ) (Y, ) is said to be slightly - continuous at a point x X if for each

subset V of Y containing f(x), there exists a -open subset U in X containing x such that f(U) V. The function

f is said to be slightly - continuous if f is slightly -continuous at each of its points.

Definition 3.2: A function f: (X, ) (Y, ) is said to be slightly -continuous if the inverse image of every

clopen set in Y is -open in X.

Example 3.3: Let X = a, b, c = Y, = X, , a , b , a, c , a, b }, = , Y, a , b, c .

X = , X, a , b , a, c , a, b . The function f is defined as f a = c, f b = a, f c = b. The function f is

slightly Sg -continuous.

Proposition 3.4: The definition 3.1 and 3.2 are equivalent.

Proof: Suppose the definition 3.1 holds. Let V be a clopen set in Y and let x f 1 V . Then f x V and thus

there exists a -open set Ux such that x Ux and f Ux V. Now x Ux f 1 (V). And f 1 V =

1

(V) is -open in X and therefore f is slightly

xf 1 (V) Ux . Since arbitrary union of -open sets is -open, f

-continuous.

Suppose the definition 3.2 holds. Let f(x) V where V is a clopen set in Y. Since f is slightly -continuous,

x f 1 V where f 1 V is -open in X. Let U = f 1 V . Then U is -open in X, xU and f(U) V.

Theorem 3.5:Let f: (X, ) (Y, ) be a function then the following are equivalent.

(1) f is slightly - continuous .

(2) The inverse image of every clopen set V of Y is -open in X.

(3) The inverse image of every clopen set V of Y is -closed in X.

(4) The inverse image of every clopen set V of Y is -clopen in X.

Proof:

(1)(2): Follows from the Theorem 3.4.

(2) (3): Let V be a clopen set in Y which implies V c is clopen in Y. By (2), f 1 V c = (f 1 V )c is -open in

X. Therefore f 1 (V) is -closed in X.

(3) (4): By (2) and (3) f 1 (V) is -clopen in X.

(4) (1): Let V be a clopen subset of Y containing f x . By (4) f 1 (V) is -clopen in X. Put U = f 1 (V) then

f(U) V. Hence f is slightly -continuous.

Theorem 3.6: Every slightly continuous function is slightly -continuous.

Proof: Let f: X Y be slightly continuous. Let U be a clopen set in Y . Then f 1 (U) is open in X. Since every

open set is -open, f 1 (U) is -open. Hence f is slightly -continuous.

Remark 3.7: The converse of the above theorem need not be true as can be seen from the following example

Example 3.8: Let X = a, b, c, d with = X, , a , {b, c}, {a, b, c, }}. X, =

X, , a , b, c , a, b, c , b, c, d . Let Y = p, q, r with ={Y, , p , {q, r}}. Define f:(X,) Y, by f a =

p, f b = q, f c = f d = r. Hence f 1 q, r = {b, c, d} is -open but not open in X. Thus f is slightly continuous but not slightly continuous.

Theorem 3.9:Every -continuous function is slightly -continuous.

Proof: Let f: X Y be a -continuous function. Let U be a clopen set in Y .Then f 1 (U) is -open in X and

-closed in X. Hence f is slightly -continuous.

Remark 3.10: The converse of the above theorem need not be true as can be seen from the following example.

Example 3.11: Let X= a, b, c , Y = p, q . = X, , a , b , a, b = X, . = Y, , p . Define

f: X, Y, by f a = q, f b = f c = p. The function f is slightly -continuous but not -continuous

since f 1 p = b, c is not -open in X.

Theorem 3.12: If the function f: X, Y, is slightly -continuous and Y, is a locally indiscrete space

then f is -continuous.

Proof: Let U be an open subset of Y. Since Y is locally indiscrete, U is closed in Y. Since f is slightly continuous, f 1 U is -open in X. Hence f is -continuous.

Theorem 3.13: If the function f: X, Y, is slightly -continuous and X, is a 1 space then f is

2

slightly continuous.

Proof: Let U be a clopen subset of Y. Since f is slightly -continuous, f 1 U is -open in X. Since X is a

1 space, f 1 U is open in X. Hence f is slightly continuous.

(i)

If f is -irresolute and g is slightly -continuous then gof: X, (Z, ) is slightly -continuous.

(ii)

If f is -irresolute and g is -continuous then gof is slightly -continuous.

(iii)

If f is -irresolute and g is slightly continuous then gof is slightly -continuous.

(iv)

If f is -continuous and g is slightly continuous then gof is slightly -continuous.

(v)

If f is strongly -continuous and g is slightly -continuous then gof is slightly continuous.

(vi)

If f is slightly -continuous and g is perfectly -continuous then gof is -irresolute.

(vii)

If f is slightly -continuous and g is contra-continuous then gof is slightly -continuous.

(viii)

If f is -irresolute and g is contra- -continuous then gof is slightly -continuous.

Proof:

(i)

Let U be a clopen set in Z. Since g is slightly -continuous, g 1 (U) is -open in Y. Since f is irresolute, f 1 (g 1 (U)) is -open in X. Since gof 1 U = f 1 (g 1 (U), gof is slightly -continuous.

(ii)

Let U be a clopen set in Z. Since g is -continuous, g 1 U is -open in Y. Also since f is irresolute, f 1 g 1 U is -open in X. Hence gof is slightly -continuous.

(iii)

Let O be a clopen set in Z. Then g 1 U is -open in Y. Therefore f 1 g1 U is -open in X,

since f is -irresolute. Hence gof is slightly -continuous.

(iv)

Let U be a clopen set in Z. Then g 1 (U) is open in Y, since g is slightly continuous. Also since f is continuous. Also since f is -continuous, f 1 g1 U is -open in X. Hence gof is slightly -continuous.

(v)

Let U be a clopen set in Z. Then g 1 U is -open in Y, since g is slightly -continuous. Also

f

g

U is open in X, since f is strongly -continuous. Therefore gof is slightly continuous.

(vi)

Let U be a -open in Z. Since g is perfectly -continuous, g 1 (U) is open and closed in Y. Then

f 1 g1 U is -open in X. Since f is slightly -continuous. Hence gof is -irresolute.

(vii)

Let U be a closed and open set in Z. Since g is contra-continuous, g 1 (U) is open and closed in Y.

Since f is slightly -continuous, f 1 (g 1 (U)) is -open in X. Since gof 1 U = f 1 (g 1 (U), gof is slightly

-continuous.

(viii)

Let O be a clopen set in Z. Since g is contra- -continuous, g 1 U is -open and -closed in Y.

Therefore f 1 g1 U is -open and -closed in X, since f is -irresolute. Hence gof is slightly continuous.

Theorem 3.15: If f: (X, ) Y, is slightly -continuous and A is an open subset of X then the restriction

f/A : (A, A ) Y, is slightly -continuous.

Proof: Let V be a clopen subset of Y. Then (f/A )1 V = f 1 (V) A. Since f 1 (V) is -open and A is

open, (f/A )1 V is -open in the relative topology of A. Hence f/A is slightly -continuous.

Definition 4.1: A map f: X, Y, is said to be totally -continuous if the inverse image of every open

set in Y, is -clopen in X, .

Example 4.2: Let X=Y={a, b, c} with = X, , a , b, c = Sg O X, and = Y, , a . Define f: X,

(Y, ) by f a = a, f b = b, f c = c. Then f is totally -continuous.

Theorem 4.3: Every perfectly -continuous function is totally -continuous.

Proof: Let f: X, (X, ) be a perfectly -continuous function. Let U be an open set in (Y, ). Then U is open in (Y, ). Since f is perfectly -continuous, f 1 (U) is both open and closed in (X, )which implies f 1 (U)

is both open and closed in (X, ) which implies f 1 (U) is both -open and -closed in (X, ). Hence f is totally

-continuous.

Remark 4.4:The converse of the above theorem need not be true as can be seen from the following example,

Example 4.5: Let X = {a, b, c} with = , X, a , {b, c} = c and Y = {d, e, f} with = , Y, d . Define

f: X, (Y, )

by

f a =d

,f b = f

and

f c = e.

Here

X , =

and Y , = , Y, d , d, e , {d, f} . Here d, e and d, f are -open in Y, but f 1 {d, e} = {a, c}

and f 1 {d, f} = {a, b} are not open as well as not closed in X. So f is not perfectly- -continuous but totally continuous.

Theorem 4.6: Every totally -continuous function is -continuous

Proof: Suppose f: X, (Y, ) is totally -continuous and A is any open set in (Y, ). Since f is totally continuous, f 1 (A) is -clopen in (X, ). Hence f is -continuous function.

Remark 4.7: The converse of the above theorem need not be true as can be seen from the following example

Example

4.8:

Let

X = {a, b, c, d}

with

= , X, a and

= , Y, a .

Here

X , = , X, a , a, b , a, c , a, d , a, b, c , a, c, d , {a, b, d} . The identity map f: X, (Y, )is continuous but not totally -continuous since f 1 {a} = {a} is -open in X, but not -closed in X, .

Remark 4.9: The following two examples shows that totally -continuous and strongly -continuous are

independent.

Example 4.10: Let X = {a, b, c} with = , X, a , {b, c} = c and Y = {d, e, f} with = , Y, d . Define

f: X, (Y, )

by

f a = d,

f b =f

and

f c = e.

Here

X , =

and Y , = , Y, d , d, e , {d, f} . Here d, e and d, f are -open in Y, but f 1 {d, e} = {a, c}

and f 1 {d, f} = {a, b} are not open in X. Hence f is not strongly -continuous but totally -continuous.

Example 4.11: Let X = Y = {a, b, c} with = , X, a , b , {a, b} = X ,

and = , Y, {a, b} =

Y, . The identity map f: X, (Y, ) is strongly -continuous but not totally -continuous. For, the

subset a, b of (Y, ), f 1 {a, b} = {a, b} is -open in X, but not -closed in X, .

Theorem 4.12: Let f: X, Y, and g: Y, Z, be function. Then gof: X, Z,

(i)

If f is -irresolute and g is totally -continuous then gof is totally -continuous.

(ii)

If f is totally -continuous and g is continuous then gof is totally -continuous.

Proof:

(i)

Let U be a open set in Z. Since g is totally -continuous, g 1 U is Sg -clopen in Y. Since f is irresolute, f 1 (g 1 (U)) is -open and -closed in X. Since gof 1 U = f 1 (g 1 (U), gof is

totally -continuous.

(ii)

Let U be a open set in Z. Since g is continuous, g 1 U is open in Y. Also since f is totally continuous, f 1 g1 U is -clopen in X. Hence gof is totally -continuous.
