Perfect pre-images of cofinally complete metric spaces

Comment.Math.Univ.Carolinae 40,2 (1999) 335-342.

Abstract:We show that a Tychonoff space is the perfect pre-image of a cofinally complete metric space if and only if it is paracompact and cofinally \v {C}ech complete. Further properties of these spaces are discussed. In particular, cofinal \v {C}ech completeness is preserved both by perfect mappings and by continuous open mappings.

Keywords: cofinally \v {C}ech complete, paracompact, cofinally complete metric space, perfect mapping
