A cardinal invariant is a function defined on the class of all topological spaces or on any of its subclasses whose values are infinite cardinal numbers and has the property that for homeomorphic spaces the function assumes the same value. In general topology the theme of cardinal invariants plays a crucial role. We will provide some reasons why this is the case.
