Measures of noncompactness on $w$-distance spaces

Aleksandar Kostić

The aim of this paper is to provide a new framework for the study of measures of noncompactness in generalized metric spaces. Firstly, we introduce the notion of $w$-measure of noncompactness on metric spaces with a $w$-distance and extend the diameter and Kuratowski functionals to this setting. At the end we give a characterization of metric completeness via our main results, providing a new answer to the open question mentioned by Arandjelovic in his PhD thesis [2].
