Abstract

top
This paper deals with questions of how many compact subsets of certain kinds it takes to cover the space ω ω of irrationals, or certain of its subspaces. In particular, given f ω ( ω { 0 } ) , we consider compact sets of the form i ω B i , where | B i | = f ( i ) for all, or for infinitely many, i . We also consider “ n -splitting” compact sets, i.e., compact sets K such that for any f K and i ω , | { g ( i ) : g K , g i = f i } | = n .
