Dear Colleagues,
I have an elementary question. It seems to me that there should
exist a theorem along the following lines: If X is metrizable and
locally compact and satisfies some countability condition and perhaps
other hypotheses, then there exists a metric for X with respect to which
any closed and bounded set is compact. I am assuming that this question
is old hat and the necessary hypotheses are known. What are the
necessary hypotheses?
