The combinatorics of splittability

Several comments about the combinatorics of τ-cover

In a previous work with Mildenberger and Shelah, we showed that the combinatorics of the selection hypotheses involving τ-covers is sensitive to the selection operator used. We introduce a natural

Selection principles and the Minimal Tower problem

We study diagonalizations of covers using various selectionprinciples, where the covers are related to linearquasiorderings ( -covers).This includes: equivalences and nonequivalences,combinatorial

The combinatorics of Borel covers

Unbounded towers and the Michael line topology

A topological space satisfies ( ΩΓ ) (also known as Gerlits–Nagy’s property γ) if every open cover of the space such that each finite subset of the space is contained in a member of the cover,

Algebra, selections, and additive Ramsey theory

Hindman's celebrated Finite Sums Theorem, and its high-dimensional version due to Milliken and Taylor, are extended from covers of countable sets to covers of arbitrary topological spaces with

Combinatorics of Open Covers (III): Games, C p ( X )

Some of the covering properties of spaces as defined in Parts I and II are here characterized by games. These results, applied to function spaces Cp(X) of countable tightness, give new

On a question of Archangelskij concerning Lindelöf spaces with countable pseudocharacter

We give a negative solution to Archangelskij's problem by showing that there exists a Lindelof space with countable pseudocharacter which does not admit a continuous one-to-one mapping onto a first

On normal Agassiz systems of algebras

The concept of Agassiz system of algebras and Agassiz sum was introduced by G. Gratzer and J. Sichler in [3]. In this paper we intend to discuss a modification of the concepts above which seems to be
