Abstract: Let be a structure in a topological space such that if , and is closed if . If is a covering of , let . If is a set and is a set, let denote the cardinal number of and . Let be an integer such that is defined as follows: if . If , then if (1) for each finite open covering of , there is an open refinement of such that if ; and (2) there is a finite open covering of such that if is an open refinement of , then for some . We say that *has property* () if for each nonempty open and each such that and whenever and each . THEOREM. *If is a metric space, has property (), is finite, and if , then *.
