Duality between large and small scale structures

A rather immediate reaction to seeing the definition of a coarse structure, at least to me, is to be reminded of a uniform structure. The axioms for a coarse structure $\mathcal{C}$ (defined by a ...

The Haar integral on uniform spaces

Does anybody know what the current research status is on the topic of Haar measures on uniform spaces? I'm specifically interested in compact uniform spaces and its corresponding Haar probability. As ...

How is the notion of a Lipschitz structure on a manifold defined?

According to wikipedia, there is such a definition. $\:$ The candidate that I can come up with is "an equivalence class of metrics that induce the topology and make the space locally bi-Lipschitz to ...

A theorem of Markov about completely regular spaces and topological groups

In Pontriaguin's classic book Grupos continuos (in English Continuous Groups), says that A. Markov proved that: There are topological groups that are not normal. Furthermore, he says it is ...

Existence of a moderate uniform structure on $\Bbb R$

A moderate uniform structure $\mathcal U$ on $\Bbb R$ is one for which $\forall U\in \mathcal U, \exists n\in \Bbb N,\quad U^n=\Bbb R^2$ but $ \not\exists n\in \Bbb N,\forall U\in \mathcal U,\quad ...

Is there a normal space that is not uniformly normal

Let $(X,\mathcal D)$ be a uniform space and $A,B\subseteq X$. Let's say $A$ is uniformly inside $B$ and write $A\le B$ iff there's some entourage $D$ for which $$(\forall a\in A)(D[a]\subseteq B)$$ A ...

Normal Uniform Spaces and their function uniform spaces

Let $(X,\mathcal D)$ be a normal (diagonal) uniform space and $G$ be the set of all homeomorphisms $f:X\to X$. Let $\Delta$ be the uniformity on $X^X$ (inherited by $G$) by subbase $$\Lambda =\{ ...

Extend Homeomorphism to Uniformly Continuous Function

I have a space $A$ which is homeomorphic to the open $n$-ball $B_n$. I'm trying to build a CW-complex with it, so I want a continuous function from the closed ball $\overline{B}_n$ to the closure ...

Reference: uniformity of pointwise convergence has no countable base

Does anyone have a reference for the fact that the uniformity of pointwise convergence on real functions of $[0,1]$ (that is, the uniformity generated by the sets $\lbrace (f,g) : |f(x) - g(x)| < ...

Complete uniform spaces require complete metrics?

Hey all, It is well-known that any uniformity is generated by the family of pseudometrics which are uniformly continuous from the product uniformity to $\mathbb{R}$. Further, the uniformity is ...

Uniformities generated by metrics.

Any uniformity on a set $X$ is generated by a family of pseudometrics on $X$. So if $(X,\mathcal D)$ is a uniform space there's a set $P$ of pseudometrics on $X$ with $$\mathcal D=\left< ...

Tensor product of C*-algebras of bounded, uniformly continuous functions on metric spaces

This is a follow up question to this one. If $X$ is a metric space, denote by $C_u(X)$ the $C^\ast$-algebra of all bounded, uniformly continuous functions on $X$ (with the sup-norm). Do we have ...

Extending uniformly continuous functions on subspaces to non-metrizable compactifications

I have a complete metric space $Y$, some non-metrizable(!) Hausdorff compactification $Z$ of it and a subspace $X \subset Y$. Furthermore, I do have a uniformly continuous function $f$ on $X$. So ...

For any entourage $U,V$ there's an entourage $W$ such that $U\circ W\subseteq V\circ U$

Let $(X,\mathcal U)$ be a uniform space and let $U\in \mathcal U$. Is this statement true? $$\forall V\in \mathcal U, \exists W\in \mathcal U, U\circ W\subseteq V\circ U$$ I think if the above ...
