Notes on monotonically metacompact generalized ordered spaces

  • Ai-Jun Xu
From the journal Open Mathematics


In this paper, we show that any generalized ordered space X is monotonically (countably) metacompact if and only if the subspace X - { x } is monotonically (countably) metacompact for every point x of X and monotone (countable) metacompact property is hereditary with respect to convex (open) subsets in generalized ordered spaces. In addition, we show the equivalence of two questions posed by H.R. Bennett, K.P. Hart and D.J. Lutzer.
