Manifolds at and beyond the limit of metrisability

David Gauld

Abstract. In this paper we give a brief introduction to criteria for metrisability of a manifold and to some aspects of non-metrisable manifolds. Bias towards work currently being done by the author and his colleagues at the University of Auckland will be very evident.

Keywords. Metrisability, non-metrisable manifold
