A generalization of Čech-complete spaces and Lindelöf Σ -spaces

Aleksander V. Arhangel'skii (2013)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

The class of s -spaces is studied in detail. It includes, in particular, all Čech-complete spaces, Lindelöf p -spaces, metrizable spaces with the weight 2 ω , but countable non-metrizable spaces and some metrizable spaces are not in it. It is shown that s -spaces are in a duality with Lindelöf Σ -spaces: X is an s -space if and only if some (every) remainder of X in a compactification is a Lindelöf Σ -space [Arhangel’skii A.V., Remainders of metrizable and close to metrizable spaces, Fund. Math. 220 (2013),...

A generalization of Magill's Theorem for non-locally compact spaces

Gary D. Faulkner, Maria Cristina Vipera (1995)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

In the theory of compactifications, Magill's theorem that the continuous image of a remainder of a space is again a remainder is one of the most important theorems in the field. It is somewhat unfortunate that the theorem holds only in locally compact spaces. In fact, if all continuous images of a remainder are again remainders, then the space must be locally compact. This paper is a modification of Magill's result to more general spaces. This of course requires restrictions on the nature of the...

A homogeneous space of point-countable but not of countable type

Désirée Basile, Jan van Mill (2007)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

We construct an example of a homogeneous space which is of point-countable but not of countable type. This shows that a result of Pasynkov cannot be generalized from topological groups to homogeneous spaces.

A note on topological groups and their remainders

Liang-Xue Peng, Yu-Feng He (2012)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

In this note we first give a summary that on property of a remainder of a non-locally compact topological group G in a compactification b G makes the remainder and the topological group G all separable and metrizable. If a non-locally compact topological group G has a compactification b G such that the remainder b G G of G belongs to 𝒫 , then G and b G G are separable and metrizable, where 𝒫 is a class of spaces which satisfies the following conditions: (1) if X 𝒫 , then every compact subset of the space X is a...

About remainders in compactifications of homogeneous spaces

D. Basile, Angelo Bella (2009)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

We prove a dichotomy theorem for remainders in compactifications of homogeneous spaces: given a homogeneous space X , every remainder of X is either realcompact and meager or Baire. In addition we show that two other recent dichotomy theorems for remainders of topological groups due to Arhangel’skii cannot be extended to homogeneous spaces.

Approximation theorems for compactifications

Kotaro Mine (2011)

Colloquium Mathematicae

We shall show several approximation theorems for the Hausdorff compactifications of metrizable spaces or locally compact Hausdorff spaces. It is shown that every compactification of the Euclidean n-space ℝⁿ is the supremum of some compactifications homeomorphic to a subspace of n + 1 . Moreover, the following are equivalent for any connected locally compact Hausdorff space X: (i) X has no two-point compactifications, (ii) every compactification of X is the supremum of some compactifications whose remainder...

Coarse dimensions and partitions of unity.

N. Brodskiy, J. Dydak (2008)


Gromov and Dranishnikov introduced asymptotic and coarse dimensions of proper metric spaces via quite different ways. We define coarse and asymptotic dimension of all metric spaces in a unified manner and we investigate relationships between them generalizing results of Dranishnikov and Dranishnikov-Keesling-Uspienskij.

Coarse structures and group actions

N. Brodskiy, J. Dydak, A. Mitra (2008)

Colloquium Mathematicae

The main results of the paper are: Proposition 0.1. A group G acting coarsely on a coarse space (X,𝓒) induces a coarse equivalence g ↦ g·x₀ from G to X for any x₀ ∈ X. Theorem 0.2. Two coarse structures 𝓒₁ and 𝓒₂ on the same set X are equivalent if the following conditions are satisfied: (1) Bounded sets in 𝓒₁ are identical with bounded sets in 𝓒₂. (2) There is a coarse action ϕ₁ of a group G₁ on (X,𝓒₁) and a coarse action ϕ₂ of a...
