We show that there is a Polish space which is countable dense homogeneous but contains a dense open rigid connected subset. This answers several questions of Fitzpatrick and Zhou.

We prove that a space M with Disjoint Disk Property is a Q-manifold if and only if M × X is a Q-manifold for some C-space X. This implies that the product M × I² of a space M with the disk is a Q-manifold if and only if M × X is a Q-manifold for some C-space X. The proof of these theorems exploits the homological characterization of Q-manifolds due to Daverman and Walsh, combined with the existence of G-stable points in C-spaces. To establish the existence of such points we prove (and afterward...

We construct a locally compact 2-dimensional polyhedron X which does not admit a 𝒵-compactification, but which becomes 𝒵-compactifiable upon crossing with the Hilbert cube. This answers a long-standing question posed by Chapman and Siebenmann in 1976 and repeated in the 1976, 1979 and 1990 versions of Open Problems in Infinite-Dimensional Topology. Our solution corrects an error in the 1990 problem list.

For every n ≥ 2, let cc(ℝⁿ) denote the hyperspace of all nonempty compact convex subsets of the Euclidean space ℝⁿ endowed with the Hausdorff metric topology. Let cb(ℝⁿ) be the subset of cc(ℝⁿ) consisting of all compact convex bodies. In this paper we discover several fundamental properties of the natural action of the affine group Aff(n) on cb(ℝⁿ). We prove that the space E(n) of all n-dimensional ellipsoids is an Aff(n)-equivariant retract of cb(ℝⁿ). This is applied to show that cb(ℝⁿ) is homeomorphic...

We prove an extension of the well-known combinatorial-topological lemma of E. Sperner to the case of infinite-dimensional cubes. It is obtained as a corollary to an infinitary extension of the Lebesgue Covering Dimension Theorem.
