### Define, Norms have the same topology

I've been googling "norms have the same topology" with only vague descriptions. Suddenly my analysis professors started using this terminology. I'm pretty sure it means all sets open with respect to some norm are open with respect to all norms. Is this correct and is there more to it then that?

### Re: Define, Norms have the same topology

I'm pretty sure that just means that the canonical topology induced by the open balls using two given norms are identical. For example, all of the p-norm topolgies are equivalent to the canonical Euclidean norm topology.

on finite dimensional spaces.

A condition equivalent to this is that every ball in one norm has two balls in the other norm, one that contains it, and the other that is contained by it.
