uniform space In the mathematical field of topology, a uniform space is a set with a uniform structure. Uniform spaces are topological spaces with additional structure that is used to define uniform properties such as completeness, uniform continuity and un ...

Uniform properties

* Separated. A uniform space ''X'' is separated if the intersection of all entourages is equal to the diagonal in ''X'' × ''X''. This is actually just a topological property, and equivalent to the condition that the underlying topological space is Hausdorff (or simply ''T''0 since every uniform space is
completely regular In topology and related branches of mathematics, Tychonoff spaces and completely regular spaces are kinds of topological spaces. These conditions are examples of separation axioms. A Tychonoff space refers to any completely regular space that is ...
). * Complete. A uniform space ''X'' is complete if every
Cauchy net In mathematics, more specifically in general topology and related branches, a net or Moore–Smith sequence is a generalization of the notion of a sequence. In essence, a sequence is a function whose domain is the natural numbers. The codomai ...

totally bounded In topology and related branches of mathematics, total-boundedness is a generalization of compactness for circumstances in which a set is not necessarily closed. A totally bounded set can be covered by finitely many subsets of every fixed “size ...
if for each entourage ''E'' ⊂ ''X'' × ''X'' there is a finite cover of ''X'' such that ''U''''i'' × ''U''''i'' is contained in ''E'' for all ''i''. Equivalently, ''X'' is totally bounded if for each entourage ''E'' there exists a finite subset of ''X'' such that ''X'' is the union of all ''E'' 'x''''i'' In terms of uniform covers, ''X'' is totally bounded if every uniform cover has a finite subcover. * Compact. A uniform space is

if it is complete and totally bounded. Despite the definition given here, compactness is a topological property and so admits a purely topological description (every open cover has a finite subcover). * Uniformly connected. A uniform space ''X'' is uniformly connected if every uniformly continuous function from ''X'' to a discrete uniform space is constant. * Uniformly disconnected. A uniform space ''X'' is uniformly disconnected if it is not uniformly connected.
