Abstract: Haver introduced the following property of metric spaces : for each sequence of positive numbers there exist collections of open subsets of , the union of which covers , such that the members of are pairwise disjoint and every member of has diameter less than . We construct two separable complete metric spaces , with the Haver property such that , generate the same topology on , but fails this property. In particular, the square of a separable complete metric space with the Haver property may fail this property. Our results answer some questions posed by Babinkostova in 2007.
