The notation and terminology of this paper coincide with that of reference , except that here the term, compactification, refers to a T1-space. It is known that a completely regular totally bounded Hausdorff quasi-uniform space (X, ) has a Hausdorff compactification if and only if contains a uniformity compatible with ℱ() [4, Theorem 3.47]. The use of regular filters by E. M. Alfsen and J. E. Fenstad  and O. Njåstad , suggests a construction of a compactification, which differs markedly from the construction obtained in . We use this construction to show that a totally bounded T1 quasi-uniform space has a compactification if and only if it is point symmetric. While it is pleasant to have a characterization that obtains for all T1-spaces, the present construction has several further attributes. Unlike the compactification obtained in , the compactification given here preserves both total boundedness and uniform weight, and coincides with the uniform completion when the quasi-uniformity under consideration is a uniformity. Moreover, any quasi-uniformly continuous map from the underlying quasi-uniform space of the compactification onto any totally bounded compact T1-space has a quasi-uniformly continuous extension to the compactification. If is the Pervin quasi-uniformity of a T1-space X, the compactification we obtain is the Wallman compactification of (X, ℱ ()). It follows that our construction need not provide a Hausdorff compactification, even when such a compactification exists; but we obtain a sufficient condition in order that our compactification be a Hausdorff space and note that this condition is satisfied by all uniform spaces and all normal equinormal quasi-uniform spaces. Finally, we note that our construction is reminiscent of the completion obtained by Á. Császár for an arbitrary quasi-uniform space [2, Section 3]; in particular our Theorem 3.7 is comparable with the result of [2, Theorem 3.5].
