Here is my problem.

Let onto function f: (R,U)→Z (U: usual topology.) ,f(x)=[x] (Gauss's notation.)

Find quotient topology on Z of f.

1.I thought that [Since R,0(empty set),(a,b),(-∞, a),(a,∞) are only open set in (R,U), I have to think of finding quotient topology with R,0(empty set),(a,b),(-∞, a),(a,∞) ]

2.If {a_1,...a_n} is finite subset of Z,

then f^-1({a_1,...,a_n})=[a_1,a_1+1)∪...∪[a_n,a_n+1) is not open set in (R,U).

Thus finite subset of Z is not open in Z.

hum..... then how can I find quotient topology on Z about f??

Please help me...
