abstract = {The Vietoris topology and Fell topologies on the closed subsets of a Hausdorff uniform space are prototypes for hit-and-miss hyperspace topologies, having as a subbase all closed sets that hit a variable open set, plus all closed sets that miss (= fail to intersect) a variable closed set belonging to a prescribed family $\Delta $ of closed sets. In the case of the Fell topology, where $\Delta $ consists of the compact sets, a closed set $A$ misses a member $B$ of $\Delta $ if and only if $A$ is far from $B$ in a uniform sense. With the Fell topology as a point of departure, one can consider proximal hit-and-miss hyperspace topologies, where “miss” is replaced by “far from” in the above formulation.
