A decomposition theorem about closed images of locally compact metric spaces is discussed. It is shown that a space is a closed image of a locally compact metric space if and only if it is a regular Fréchet space with a point-countable k-network, and each of its closed first-countable subset is locally compact.
The problem when a paratopolgical group (or semitopological group) is a topological group is interesting and important. In this paper, we continue to study this problem. It mainly shows that: (1) Let G be a paratopological group and put τ = ωHs(G); then G is a topological group if G is a Pτ-space; (2) every co-locally countably compact paratopological group G with ωHs(G) ≦ ω is a topological group; (3) every co-locally compact paratopological group is a topological group; (4) each 2-pseudocompact paratopological group G with ωHs(G) ≦ ω is a topological group. These results improve some results in [11, 13].
In this paper, we define the spaces with a regular base at non-isolated points and discuss some metrization theorems. We firstly show that a space X is a metrizable space, if and only if X is a regular space with a σ-locally finite base at non-isolated points, if and only if X is a perfect space with a regular base at non-isolated points, if and only if X is a β-space with a regular base at non-isolated points. In addition, we also discuss the relations between the spaces with a regular base at non-isolated points and some generalized metrizable spaces. Finally, we give an affirmative answer for a question posed by F. C. Lin and S. Lin in , which also shows that a space with a regular base at non-isolated points has a point-countable base.
