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

locally compact and second-countable spaces are sigma-compact

Analysis Theorems
A topological space is called extremally disconnected if the closure of any open subset is still an open subset.
Extremally disconnected topological spaces are precisely the projective objects in the category of compact Hausdorff topological spaces.
See e.g. (Bhatt-Scholze 13, below theorem 1.8)
For $R$ a w-contractible ring, the profinite set $\pi_0(Spec R)$ is an extremally disconnected profinite set.
Part of (Bhatt-Scholze 13, theorem 1.8).
The extremal disconnectedness of a space is correlated with the property that the frame of its open subsets is a De Morgan Heyting algebra hence with the validity of the De Morgan law in logic, since a result by Johnstone says that a topos $Sh(X)$ of sheaves on a space $X$ is a De Morgan topos precisely when $X$ is extremally disconnected and this implies that all subobject lattices $sub(X)$ are De Morgan Heyting algebras, in particular $sub(1)$ corresponding to the frame of opens of $X$ (cf. De Morgan topos for details and references).
For $S$ any set regarded as a discrete topological space, its Stone-Cech compactification is extremally disconnected.
(e.g. Bhatt-Scholze 13, example 2.4.6)
The profinite set underlying the p-adic integers, regarded as a Stone space, is not extremally diconnected.
