A Čech function in ZFC

Fred Galvin, Petr Simon (2007)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

A nontrivial surjective Čech closure function is constructed in ZFC.

A C(K) Banach space which does not have the Schroeder-Bernstein property

Piotr Koszmider (2012)

Studia Mathematica

We construct a totally disconnected compact Hausdorff space K₊ which has clopen subsets K₊” ⊆ K₊’ ⊆ K₊ such that K₊” is homeomorphic to K₊ and hence C(K₊”) is isometric as a Banach space to C(K₊) but C(K₊’) is not isomorphic to C(K₊). This gives two nonisomorphic Banach spaces (necessarily nonseparable) of the form C(K) which are isomorphic to complemented subspaces of each other (even in the above strong isometric sense), providing a solution to the Schroeder-Bernstein problem for Banach spaces...

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 construction of a Fréchet-Urysohn space, and some convergence concepts

Aleksander V. Arhangel'skii (2010)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

Some strong versions of the Fréchet-Urysohn property are introduced and studied. We also strengthen the concept of countable tightness and generalize the notions of first-countability and countable base. A construction of a topological space is described which results, in particular, in a Tychonoff countable Fréchet-Urysohn space which is not first-countable at any point. It is shown that this space can be represented as the image of a countable metrizable space under a continuous pseudoopen mapping....

A construction of noncontractible simply connected cell-like two-dimensional Peano continua

Katsuya Eda, Umed H. Karimov, Dušan Repovš (2007)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Using the topologist sine curve we present a new functorial construction of cone-like spaces, starting in the category of all path-connected topological spaces with a base point and continuous maps, and ending in the subcategory of all simply connected spaces. If one starts from a noncontractible n-dimensional Peano continuum for any n > 0, then our construction yields a simply connected noncontractible (n + 1)-dimensional cell-like Peano continuum. In particular, starting from the circle 𝕊¹,...

A dimension raising hereditary shape equivalence

Jan Dijkstra (1996)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

We construct a hereditary shape equivalence that raises transfinite inductive dimension from ω to ω+1. This shows that ind and Ind do not admit a geometric characterisation in the spirit of Alexandroff's Essential Mapping Theorem, answering a question asked by R. Pol.

A forcing construction of thin-tall Boolean algebras

Juan Martínez (1999)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

It was proved by Juhász and Weiss that for every ordinal α with 0 < α < ω 2 there is a superatomic Boolean algebra of height α and width ω. We prove that if κ is an infinite cardinal such that κ < κ = κ and α is an ordinal such that 0 < α < κ + + , then there is a cardinal-preserving partial order that forces the existence of a superatomic Boolean algebra of height α and width κ. Furthermore, iterating this forcing through all α < κ + + , we obtain a notion of forcing that preserves cardinals and such that in the corresponding generic...

A group topology on the free abelian group of cardinality 𝔠 that makes its square countably compact

Ana Carolina Boero, Artur Hideyuki Tomita (2011)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Under 𝔭 = 𝔠, we prove that it is possible to endow the free abelian group of cardinality 𝔠 with a group topology that makes its square countably compact. This answers a question posed by Madariaga-Garcia and Tomita and by Tkachenko. We also prove that there exists a Wallace semigroup (i.e., a countably compact both-sided cancellative topological semigroup which is not a topological group) whose square is countably compact. This answers a question posed by Grant.
