We show that for each natural $n>1$ it is consistent that there is a compact Hausdorff space $K_{2n}$ such that in $C(K_{2n})$ there is no uncountable (semi)biorthogonal sequence $(f_\xi,\mu_\xi)_{\xi\in \omega_1}$ where $\mu_\xi$'s are atomic measures with supports consisting of at most $2n-1$ points of $K_{2n}$, but there are biorthogonal systems $(f_\xi,\mu_\xi)_{\xi\in \omega_1}$ where $\mu_\xi$'s are atomic measures with supports consisting of $2n$ points. This complements a result of… 

Large Irredundant Sets in Operator Algebras

Abstract A subset ${\mathcal{X}}$ of a C*-algebra ${\mathcal{A}}$ is called irredundant if no $A\in {\mathcal{X}}$ belongs to the C*-subalgebra of ${\mathcal{A}}$ generated by ${\mathcal{X}}\setminus

Some Topological Invariants and Biorthogonal Systems in Banach Spaces

We consider topological invariants on compact spaces related to the sizes of discrete subspaces (spread), densities of subspaces, Lindelof degree of subspaces, irredundant families of clopen sets and

Uncountable equilateral sets in Banach spaces of the form C(K)

The paper is concerned with the problem whether a nonseparable Banach space must contain an uncountable set of vectors such that the distances between every two distinct vectors of the set are the

On coverings of Banach spaces and their subsets by hyperplanes

Given a Banach space we consider the σ-ideal of all of its subsets which are covered by countably many hyperplanes and investigate its standard cardinal characteristics as the additivity, the



Thin-very tall compact scattered spaces which are hereditarily separable

We strengthen the property $\Delta$ of a function $f:[\omega_2]^2\rightarrow [\omega_2]^{\leq \omega}$ considered by Baumgartner and Shelah. This allows us to consider new types of amalgamations in

Points of support for closed convex sets

A point x0 of a closed convex subset K of a real Banach space X is called a point of support for K if there is a functional x* X* such that x*(xo) _ x*(x) for every x K and x*(xo) < x*(x’) for some


As a consequence of results by B. Jónsson [Jj], [J2], M. Morley and R. Vaught [MV](2), for every cardinal number « such that « = «£ (=2 {«" : /*<«})(3) there is a unique (up to Boolean isomorphism)

Uncountable constructions for B.A. e.c. groups and banach spaces

AbstractThis paper has two aims: to aid a non-logician to construct uncountable examples by reducing the problems to finitary problems, and also to present some construction solving open problems. We

Biorthogonal systems and quotient spaces via baire category methods

We show that every Banach space X of density smaller that the Baire category number admits a quotient with a long Schauder basis that can be taken of length ω1 if X is not separable. So, assuming
