Symbol-free definition

A topological space is termed hereditarily paracompact if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:


In terms of the hereditarily operator

This property is obtained by applying the hereditarily operator to the property: paracompactness

Note that for compactness-type properties in general, being hereditary on open subsets is sufficient for being hereditary on all subsets.

This property of topological spaces is hereditary, or subspace-closed. In other words, any subspace (subset with the subspace topology) of a topological space with this property also has this property.

Any subspace of a hereditarily paracompact space is hereditarily paracompact; this follows from the definition.
