As a first step you may want to work problem 8.5.16 in Engelking's General Topology. Keep in mind that a compact Hausdorff space has a unique uniformity, the sets of all neighbourhoods of the diagonal, hence so does the hyperspace.

**Spaces of closed subsets V** (see Problems 2.7.20, 3.12.27, 4.5.23, 6.3.22 and 8.5.13(i))

**8.5.16.** Let $(X, \mathcal U)$ be a uniform space and $2^X$ the family of all non-empty subsets of $X$ closed with respect to the topology induced by $\mathcal U$.

(a) Show that the family $\mathcal B$ of all sets
$$2^V=\{(A,A')\in 2^X\times2^X; A\subset B(A',V)\text{ and }A'\subset B(A,V)\}$$
where $V\in\mathcal U$ has properties (BU1)-(BU3); the uniformity $2^X$ generated by the base $\mathcal B$ is denoted $2^{\mathcal U}$. Verify that $(X,\mathcal U)$ is uniformly isomorphic to a subspace of the uniform space thus obtained which is closed with respect to the topology induced on $2^X$ by the uniformity $2^{\mathcal U}$.

(b) Verify that if a uniformity $\mathcal U$ on a set $X$ is induced by a metric $\rho$ on the set $X$, then the uniformity $2^{\mathcal U}_{\mathcal M}$ on the family $\mathcal M$ of all bounded, non-empty closed subsets of $(X, \rho)$ coincides with the uniformity induced by the Hausdorff metric.

(c) (Michael [1951]) Show that for every uniformity $\mathcal U$ on a topological space $X$, the topology on $\mathcal Z (X)$ induced by the uniformity $2^{\mathcal U}_{\mathcal Z(X)}$ coincides with the Vietoris topology.

(d) Verify that if the uniform space $(X, \mathcal U)$ is totally bounded, then the space $(2^X,2^{\mathcal U})$ also is totally bounded.

(e) Give an example of a complete uniform space $(X, \mathcal U)$ such that the space $(2^X,2^{\mathcal U})$ is not complete.
*Hint.* Consider the uniformity on the real line generated by the base consisting of all sets of the form $\bigcup\{A\times A; A\in \mathcal A\}$, where $\mathcal A$ is a countable cover of the real line by pairwise disjoint sets.

(f) Show that if the uniform space $(X, \mathcal U)$ is compact, then the space $(2^X,2^{\mathcal U})$ also is compact.
