In this paper: 'Borel structures for Function spaces' by Robert Aumann,


Aumann claims that when X and Y are metric spaces (among other things), the Baire classes and Banach classes coincide, I've been looking all over and can't find a reference or proof, I need to know if the result can be extended to METRIZABLE spaces (that is, if the Baire classes and Banach classes coincide for metrizable spaces too), I desperately need this to be true for a proof I'm working on, it's like the last step in my proof, so I was wondering if anyone knows this or can point me in the right direction? In Aumann's paper There's a reference to this paper: 'Über analytisch darstellbare Operationen in abstrakten Räumen' by Banach, but it's in german and I don't speak it and as far as I know there's no translation to english.

    $\begingroup$ The best thing you can do that I'm aware of is the case where $X$ and $Y$ are metrizable and $Y$ is in addition separable. A proof can be found in Section 24 of Kechris, Classical Descriptive Set Theory, Theorem 24.3. This proof makes essential use of separability of $Y$. $\endgroup$ – Theo Buehler Jun 23 '11 at 6:20
