This entry is about squares in geometry. For squares in category theory see commutative square. For squares in ring theory, see square function. For squares in type theory, see square type.

Basic statements
closed subspaces of compact Hausdorff spaces are equivalently compact subspaces
open subspaces of compact Hausdorff spaces are locally compact
compact spaces equivalently have converging subnet of every net
continuous metric space valued function on compact metric space is uniformly continuous
paracompact Hausdorff spaces equivalently admit subordinate partitions of unity
injective proper maps to locally compact spaces are equivalently the closed embeddings
locally compact and second-countable spaces are sigma-compact

derived smooth geometry
As a polygon the square is the regular 4-gon.
As a topological space it is the product topological space of the bounded closed interval with itself, $[0,1]^2$ .
The identification of opposite sides of the square yields the cylinder and the torus.
And the identification with opposite orientation yields the Möbius strip.
