Let C(XY) denote the set of all continuous functions from a topological space X to a topological space Y. When \(Y= \mathbb {R}\), the set of all real numbers, equipped with the usual distance metric, we write C(X) instead of \(C(X,\mathbb {R})\). Firstly, we give the definitions of the uniform, fine and graph topologies on the set C(XY). Then we compare these topologies among themselves and with the point-open and compact-open topologies on C(XY) for a metric space (Yd). In the last section, we study the dependence of the uniform and fine topologies upon the choice of a compatible metric on Y.
