Let X be an hereditary subspace of the Polish space ω of real sequences, i.e. a subspace such that [x = (xₙ)ₙ ∈ X and ∀n, |yₙ| ≤ |xₙ|] ⇒ y = (yₙ)ₙ ∈ X. Does X admit a complete metric compatible with its vector structure? We have two results: ∙ If such an X has a complete metric δ, there exists a unique pair (E,F) of hereditary subspaces with E ⊆ X ⊆ F, (E,δ) complete separable, and F complete maximal in a strong sense. On E and F, the metrics have a simple form, and the spaces E are Borel (Π₃⁰ or Σ₂⁰) in ω . In particular, if X is separable, then X = E. ∙ If X is an hereditary space, analytic as a subset of ω , we can find a subspace of X strongly isomorphic to the space c₀₀ of finite sequences, or we can find a pair (E,F) and a metric with the same properties around X. If X is Σ₃⁰ in ω , we get a complete trichotomy describing the possible topologies of X, which makes precise a result of [C], but for general X’s, there are examples of various situations.
