Definition Edit

A subset Y of a space X is said to be 2-paracompact in X iff for every open cover U of X, there exists a collection V which satisfies:

  1. V consists of open subsets of X;
  2. V covers Y;
  3. V is a partial refinement? of U;
  4. V is locally finite at Y.

Remark Edit

  • This is not a property for topological spaces, but subspaces.
  • The term "2-paracompact" is often shortened to "paracompact".
  • See 1-paracompact, 3-paracompact.
