Actually, I don't know much about continued fractions. What does the topology on N^N look like? Do you mean by R\Q the corresponding subspace of R.

See above.

My colleague and I we have been comparing topological Krull dimension and heigth of Alexandrovtopological spaces. They are known to be equal in the finite dimensional case and when one is infinte then so is the other. We wanted to prove that equality for the infinite cases. But we have solved that question yesterday.
