### A generalization of the Arhangelskii Theorem

Arhangeleskii's Theorem states the following
For any Hausdorff topological space $X$,
$$
|X|\leq2^{\chi(X)L(X)}
$$
where $\chi(X)$ is the character of $X$ and $L(X)$ is the Lindelöf degree of $...

### Totally disconnected subspaces

This question is motivated by this one, where no simple solution within ZFC seems to exist. Let me ask a weaker question then.
Suppose that $K$ is a compact, Hausdorff, non-metrizable space. Does it ...

### Weak compactness of order intervals in $L^1$

Let $(\Omega,\mu)$ be a measure space, say $\sigma$-finite for the sake of simplicity, and let $L^1 := L^1(\Omega,\mu)$ denote the real-valued $L^1$-space over $(\Omega,\mu)$.
For all $f,h \in L^1$ ...

### trace-class embeddings

There is a classical theorem of Riesz-Kolmogorov that characterizes compact embedding in $L^p$-spaces of some subspace of them. A generalization to arbitrary metric spaces has been recently obtained ...

### Compact, densely ordered spaces

During my work with order preserving homeomorphisms, I got interested in the double arrow space and, subsequently, in the lexicographic square.
I would really like to find examples of spaces like ...

### Continuous injection of metric ball into Euclidean ball

This is a follow-up to this post.
Suppose that $(X,d_X)$ is a compact metric space with (finite) metric-capacity, defined by
$$
\kappa_X(\epsilon)\triangleq\sup\left\{
k : \exists x_0,\dots,x_k \...
