I am reading Karl R. Stromberg's book: "An Introduction to Classical Real Analysis". ... ...

I am focused on Chapter 3: Limits and Continuity ... ...

I need

Theorem 3.43 and its proof read as follows:

At about the middle of the above proof by Stromberg we read the following:

" ... ... Otherwise enumerate \(\displaystyle \mathscr{V}\) as \(\displaystyle \{ V_k \}_{ k = 1 }^{ \infty }\). ... ... "

I am wondering what are the \(\displaystyle V_k\) ... are they elements of \(\displaystyle \mathscr{V}\) (... that is, the \(\displaystyle U_B\)) ... or are they sets of some kind ... ...

... indeed maybe the \(\displaystyle V_k\) are just equal to the \(\displaystyle U_B\) ... in that case why not enumerate \(\displaystyle \mathscr{V}\) as \(\displaystyle \{ U_{ B_k } \}_{ k = 1 }^{ \infty }\) ...

Hope someone can help ...
