# Complete uniform space

From Encyclopedia of Mathematics

2010 Mathematics Subject Classification: *Primary:* 54E15 *Secondary:* 54E50 [MSN][ZBL]

A uniform space in which every Cauchy filter converges. An important example is a complete metric space. A closed subspace of a complete uniform space is complete; a complete subspace of a separable uniform space is closed. The product of complete uniform spaces is complete; conversely, if the product of non-empty uniform spaces is complete, then all the spaces are complete. Any uniform space $X$ can be uniformly and continuously mapped onto some dense subspace of a complete uniform space $\hat{X}$ (see Completion of a uniform space).
