Nagata–Smirnov metrization theorem

Nagata–Smirnov metrization theorem The Nagata–Smirnov metrization theorem in topology characterizes when a topological space is metrizable. The theorem states that a topological space {displaystyle X} is metrizable if and only if it is regular, Hausdorff and has a countably locally finite (that is, -locally finite) basis.

A topological space {displaystyle X} is called a regular space if every non-empty closed subset {displaystyle C} of {displaystyle X} and a point p not contained in {displaystyle C} admit non-overlapping open neighborhoods. A collection in a space {displaystyle X} is countably locally finite (or -locally finite) if it is the union of a countable family of locally finite collections of subsets of {displaystyle X.} Unlike Urysohn's metrization theorem, which provides only a sufficient condition for metrizability, this theorem provides both a necessary and sufficient condition for a topological space to be metrizable. The theorem is named after Junichi Nagata and Yuriĭ Mikhaĭlovich Smirnov, whose (independent) proofs were published in 1950[1] and 1951,[2] respectively.
