A note about my research. I work for the Department of
Mathematics of the University of Panama. My research interest at
the moment lies on the History of Mathematics. I
am interested in the development of the concept of Compactness
and its relation to Normal Spaces. In particular I am
working with the Uniform Convergence concept, I want to
see if there is any relation between this concept and the
development of Measure Theory toward the end of last
century. If there is coincidence between your research and mine,
or you have any question or suggestions related to it, please let
me know by dropping me an e-mail.
