Definition Edit

A topological space X is called D-paracompact (originally named d-paracompact by Pareek) if for every open cover U of X, there exists an U-mapping of X onto some developable space space M.
Here a map f is a U-mapping if f is continuous and there exists an open cover V of M such that f^{-1}(V) refines U. See D-paracompact, [Dowker1948] and [Nashef1991] for detail.

Remark Edit

Dowker characterized Hausdorff paracompact spaces as those spaces that have the property if U is an open cover of X then there exists a U-mapping f from X onto some metrizable space M. D-paracompactness is a generalization of paracompactness from this viewpoint.
