nearly paracompact space, regular open set, nearly regular and uniform pseudo-bases, nearly metrizable.


The present article deals with near metrizability, initiated in an earlier paper, with a new orientation and approach. The notions of nearly regular and uniform pseudo-bases are introduced and analogues of some results concerning metrizability and paracompactness are obtained for near metrizability and near paracompactness respectively via the proposed approach, suitably formulated.
