Suppose that \(X\) and \(Y\) are completely regular spaces, \(\dim X\) denotes the Lebesgue dimension of \(X\), and \(C_ p(X)\) denotes the space of all continuous real valued functions on \(X\) with the topology of pointwise convergence. According to a result of V. G. Pestov [Sov. Math., Dokl. 26, 380-383 (1982); translation from Dokl. Akad. Nauk SSSR 266, 553-556 (1982; Zbl 0518.54030)], if \(C_ p(X)\) and \(C_ p(Y)\) are linearly homeomorphic, then \(\dim X = \dim Y\). In the present paper, the author extends this result by showing that if \(C_ p (X)\) and \(C_ p (Y)\) are uniformly homeomorphic, then \(\dim X = \dim Y\). He first proves his result for second countable spaces and then uses inverse limits to obtain the general case.
