A note on paracompactness in generalized ordered spaces. (English) Zbl 0885.54023
Summary: We show that for generalized ordered spaces, paracompactness is equivalent to Property D, where a space \(X\) is said to have Property D if, given any collection \(\{G(x): x\in X\}\) of open sets in \(X\) satisfying \(x\in G(x)\) for each \(x\), there is a closed discrete subset \(D\) of \(X\) satisfying \(X=\bigcup \{G(x): x\in D\}\).
