Introduction. The three classical set-theoretic concepts of dimensions for topological spaces are [2, p. 153]: small inductive dimension —denoted by ind—such that ind (5) = — 1 if S is empty, ind(S) ^ n if for every point p £ S and open set U containing p there is an open set F with pG VC Uand ind(bdry V)^n-1, and ind(5) = n if ind(5) Sn but ind(5) l^n — 1 is not true; large inductive dimension—denoted by Ind—such that I n d ( 5 ) = — 1 if 5 is empty, I nd (5 )^w if for every closed set C and…

1. Preliminaries. If E is a topological space, then a space X is called E-compact if X can be embedded as a closed subspace of some topological power of E. This concept was introduced by Engelking…

The orderability and suborderability of metrizable spaces

- Mathematics

A space is defined to be suborderable if it is embeddable in a (totally) orderable space. It is shown that a metrizable space X is suborderable iff (1) each component of X is orderable, (2) the set…
