Introduction. The three classical set-theoretic concepts of dimensions for topological spaces are [2, p. 153]: small inductive dimension —denoted by ind—such that ind (5) = — 1 if S is empty, ind(S) ^ n if for every point p £ S and open set U containing p there is an open set F with pG VC Uand ind(bdry V)^n-1, and ind(5) = n if ind(5) Sn but ind(5) l^n — 1 is not true; large inductive dimension—denoted by Ind—such that I n d ( 5 ) = — 1 if 5 is empty, I nd (5 )^w if for every closed set C and… 
On symmetric neighborhood systems in metric, strongly paracompact and some other types of spaces
as a ".symmetric collection" of subsets of R. It is said to be finite if the collection of distinct sets U(p) is finite; and similarly for star finite, locally countable, etc. Equivalently, we choose
Another realcompact, $0$-dimensional, non-$N$-compact space
1. Preliminaries. If E is a topological space, then a space X is called E-compact if X can be embedded as a closed subspace of some topological power of E. This concept was introduced by Engelking
The orderability and suborderability of metrizable spaces
A space is defined to be suborderable if it is embeddable in a (totally) orderable space. It is shown that a metrizable space X is suborderable iff (1) each component of X is orderable, (2) the set
Inverse Limits and N-Compact Spaces
A directed set is a non-empty set S equipped with a reflexive and transitive relation ≤ such that for any r, s ∈ S, there is t ∈ S with r ≤ t and s ≤ t. An inverse system \((X_s, f^s_r; S)\) of
Spaces with Noncoinciding Dimensions
For any given nonnegative integers l. m. n with max{l, m} ≤ n and n = 0 if m — 0, we construct a normal. Hausdorff and separable space X with ind .X = l. dim X = m and Ind X = n. We also construct a
On nonseparable Erdös spaces
In 2005, Dijkstra studied subspaces E of the Banach spaces ' p that are constructed as 'products' of countably many zero-dimensional subsets of R, as a generalization of Erd˝os space and complete


Dimension of metric spaces
It is to be shown that a metric space has dimension ≤ n if and only if there exists a sequence {{ai} of locally finite open coverings, each of order ≤ n, with mesh tending to zero as i→∞, such that
