𝒫 -approximable compact spaces

Mihail G. Tkachenko (1991)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

For every topological property 𝒫 , we define the class of 𝒫 -approximable spaces which consists of spaces X having a countable closed cover γ such that the “section” X ( x , γ ) = { F γ : x F } has the property 𝒫 for each x X . It is shown that every 𝒫 -approximable compact space has 𝒫 , if 𝒫 is one of the following properties: countable tightness, 0 -scatteredness with respect to character, C -closedness, sequentiality (the last holds under MA or 2 0 < 2 1 ). Metrizable-approximable spaces are studied: every compact space in this class has...

A compact ccc non-separable space from a Hausdorff gap and Martin's Axiom

Murray G. Bell (1996)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

We answer a question of I. Juhasz by showing that MA + ¬ CH does not imply that every compact ccc space of countable π -character is separable. The space constructed has the additional property that it does not map continuously onto I ω 1 .

A compact Hausdorff topology that is a T₁-complement of itself

Dmitri Shakhmatov, Michael Tkachenko (2002)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Topologies τ₁ and τ₂ on a set X are called T₁-complementary if τ₁ ∩ τ₂ = X∖F: F ⊆ X is finite ∪ ∅ and τ₁∪τ₂ is a subbase for the discrete topology on X. Topological spaces ( X , τ X ) and ( Y , τ Y ) are called T₁-complementary provided that there exists a bijection f: X → Y such that τ X and f - 1 ( U ) : U τ Y are T₁-complementary topologies on X. We provide an example of a compact Hausdorff space of size 2 which is T₁-complementary to itself ( denotes the cardinality of the continuum). We prove that the existence of a compact Hausdorff...

A compactness result in thin-film micromagnetics and the optimality of the Néel wall

Radu Ignat, Felix Otto (2008)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

In this paper, we study a model for the magnetization in thin ferromagnetic films. It comes as a variational problem for S 1 -valued maps m ' (the magnetization) of two variables x ' : E ε ( m ' ) = ε | ' · m ' | 2 d x ' + 1 2 | ' | - 1 / 2 ' · m ' 2 d x ' . We are interested in the behavior of minimizers as ε 0 . They are expected to be S 1 -valued maps m ' of vanishing distributional divergence ' · m ' = 0 , so that appropriate boundary conditions enforce line discontinuities. For finite ε > 0 , these line discontinuities are approximated by smooth transition layers, the so-called Néel walls. Néel...

A Corson compact L-space from a Suslin tree

Peter Nyikos (2015)

Colloquium Mathematicae

The completion of a Suslin tree is shown to be a consistent example of a Corson compact L-space when endowed with the coarse wedge topology. The example has the further properties of being zero-dimensional and monotonically normal.

A decomposition theorem for compact groups with an application to supercompactness

Wiesław Kubiś, Sławomir Turek (2011)

Open Mathematics

We show that every compact connected group is the limit of a continuous inverse sequence, in the category of compact groups, where each successor bonding map is either an epimorphism with finite kernel or the projection from a product by a simple compact Lie group. As an application, we present a proof of an unpublished result of Charles Mills from 1978: every compact group is supercompact.
