Some properties of bornological convergences

We study some basic properties of the so-called bornological convergences in the realm of quasi-uniform spaces. In particular, we revisit the results about when these convergences are topological by means of the use of pretopologies. This yields a presentation of the bornological convergences as a certain kind of hit-and-miss pretopologies. Furthermore, we characterize the precompactness and total boundedness of the natural quasi-uniformities associated to these convergences. We also obtain an extension of the classical result of Künzi and Ryser about the compactness of the topology generated by the Hausdorff quasi-uniformity to this framework. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
