Not to be confused with: locally connected topological space - note that locally path-connected is to path connected as locally connected is to connected


Let [ilmath](X,\mathcal{ J })[/ilmath] be a topological space, we say that it is locally path-connected or is a locally path-connected (topological space) (Caveat:path-connected is a related but distinct concept) if it satisfies the following property[1]:

  • [ilmath]\exists\mathcal{B}\in\mathcal{P}(\mathcal{P}(X))\forall B\in\mathcal{B}[B\text{ is } [/ilmath][ilmath]\text{path-connected} [/ilmath][ilmath]][/ilmath] -
    TODO: Presumably
    [ilmath]B[/ilmath] is considered as a subspace of [ilmath]X[/ilmath].
    • In words: [ilmath](X,\mathcal{ J })[/ilmath] is locally path-connected if it admits a basis of path-connected (open by definition) subsets of [ilmath]X[/ilmath].
