In this chapter, we study the connectedness and some related algebraic properties of the uniform, fine and graph topologies on the space C(XY), the set of all continuous functions from a Tychonoff space X to a normed linear space \((Y,||\cdot ||)\). We show that these function spaces are in general not connected and in that case we determine the components and path components of these spaces.
