Hi, where I can find a proof of the theorem that establishes that a manifold is metrizable (with a riemannian metric) if and only if is paracompact?.

Wow, I found a proof in Kobayashi and Nomizu, Vol I, and it seems pretty hard . I think that simply I will have to accept the result

Hi aleazk!

Try "topology" of Munkres, it gives an easy proof of the result (but the proof is still several pages long )
