### a subclass of quasi metric spaces with properties almost identical to metric spaces

It is well known that passing from metric spaces to quasi-metric spaces (i.e., dropping the requirement that the metric function $d:X\times X\to \mathbb R$ satisfies $d(x,y)=d(y,x)$) carries with it ...

### do the uniformly continuous functions to the reals determine the uniformity?

It is well known that the completely regular spaces $X$ are characterized as those topological spaces whose topology is recovered from $C(X)$, the set of continuous functions $X\to \mathbb R$. In ...
