Let \(X\) be a Tikhonov space and \(C(X)\) be a linear space of all continuous real-valued functions over \(X\). The set \(A\) is said to be bounded in \(X\) if any function \(f\in C(X)\) is bounded on \(A\). Let \(\lambda\) be a family of bounded subsets in \(X\). The topology of uniform convergence on the elements \(\lambda\) is called a \(\lambda\)-topology. The paper contains a survey of the author’s results devoted to the space \(C_{\lambda}(X)\) of all continuous real-valued functions on \(X\) endowed with arbitrary \(\lambda\)-topologies. The preferences are given to the following subjects: cardinal functions, locally convex properties, weak and strong topologies, dual spaces, lattices of \(\lambda\)-topologies, completeness.
