Abstract

"It has been shown that topological spaces are characterized as quasi-pseudometric spaces over some Tikhonov semifield.

Sufficient conditions are given for a T1 space to be metrizable over some Tikhonov semifield.

Completely regular (uniform) spaces are characterized as pseudornetric spaces over some Tikhonov semifield.

Certain metric, pseudornetric, quasi-metric, quasipseudometric spaces over a Tikhonov semifield are shown to be respectively metric, pseudometric, quasi-metric, quasipseudometric spaces in the usual sense.

Several results from fixed point theory in the metric space setting are generalized to the setting of completely regular (uniform) Hausdorff spaces."--Abstract, page ii.
