Abstract: Let $ {\text{CL(}}X{\text{)}}$ be the nonempty closed subsets of a metrizable space $ X$. If $ d$ is a compatible metric, the metrizable Attouch-Wets topology $ {\tau _{aw}}(d)$ on $ {\text{CL(}}X{\text{)}}$ is the topology of uniform convergence of distance functionals associated with elements of $ {\text{CL(}}X{\text{)}}$ on bounded subsets of $ X$. The main result of this paper shows that two compatible metrics $ d$ and $ \rho $ determine the same Attouch-Wets topologies if and only if they determine the same bounded sets and the same class of functions that are uniformly continuous on bounded sets.
