Abstract: The abstract notion of convergence of functions with respect to a small system has its roots in the concept of convergence of functions in measure. The second author has shown that convergence of functions with respect to a small system generates a Fréchet topology. In this paper we show that convergence with respect to a small system is equivalent to convergence with respect to a certain complete pseudometric (or metric if we consider equivalence classes of functions with respect to the small system).
