Near metrizability via a new approach

Dhananjoy Mandal, M. N. Mukherjee


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.


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