### Is there a Tychonoff space $X$ such that …?

$X$ is not a separable submetrizable, i.e.($iw(X)>\omega$) $X$ has not a countable injective weight. There is a Baire isomorphism 1-class between $X$ and a separable metrizable space $Y$.

### Are σ-sets preserved by Borel isomorphisms?

Recall that a $\sigma$-space is a topological space such that every $F_{\sigma}$-set is $G_{\delta}$-set. $X$ - $\sigma$-set, if $X$ is a $\sigma$-space and it is subset of real line $R$. Let $F$ ...

### Definition of $S_1(A,B)$

The definition of first selection principle is well known: $S_1(A,B)$. Let $A$ and $B$ be families of sets. The symbol $S_1(A, B)$ denotes the statement: for each sequence $(A_n : n \in \omega)$ of ...

### Unbounded towers and combinatorial cardinal characteristics of the continuum

Update: Perhaps the question is too difficult. I would appreciate, thus, even just comments or related observations. This question assumes familiarity with combinatorial cardinal characteristics of ...

### On a strengthening of strong measure zero

Recall that a set of $X$ of reals has strong measure zero (SMZ) if for every sequence $\{\epsilon_n:n<\omega\}$ of positive real numbers, there is a sequence $\{I_n:n<\omega\}$ of intervals such ...

### Reference request: The consistency of a tall tower in $\mathbb{N}^\mathbb{N}$

A $\kappa$-tower in $\mathbb{N}^\mathbb{N}$ is a sequence $\langle a_\alpha : \alpha<\kappa\rangle$ in $\mathbb{N}^\mathbb{N}$ that is $\le^*$-increasing with $\alpha$ and has no $\le^*$-upper ...

### When is there an unbounded tower in $[\mathbb{N}]^\infty$?

(Edit: I'm splitting the question, leaving here only what is answered by Ashutosh, and moving the rest to another question.) This question assumes familiarity with combinatorial cardinal ...

### Countable vs. ultra-negligible sets [duplicate]

A subset $A\subset\mathbb{R}$ is negligible if for each $\epsilon>0$ there exists a sequence $(I_n)$ of intervals such that $A\subset\cup_n I_n$ and $\sum_n \vert I_n \vert \leq \epsilon$. Let us ...

### A set that can be covered by arbitrarily small intervals

Let $X$ be a subset of the real line and $S=\{s_i\}$ an infinite sequence of positive numbers. Let me say that $X$ is $S$-small if there is a collection $\{I_i\}$ of intervals such that the length of ...

### Two strengthenings of “strong measure zero”

A set $X\subseteq\mathbb{R}$ is strong measure zero if, for every sequence $(\epsilon_i)_{i\in\mathbb{N}}$ of positive reals, there is a sequence $(I_i)_{i\in\mathbb{N}}$ of open intervals covering $X$...

### Implications between different covering properties of spaces

Let $X$ be a set. A set ${\cal C}\subseteq {\cal P}(X)$ is said to be a cover of $X$ if $\bigcup {\cal C} = X$ and $X\notin {\cal C}$. If ${\frak U}$ and $\frak{W}$ are collections of covers of a set,...
A set of reals $X$ is strong measure zero if for any sequence of positive real numbers $( \epsilon_n ) _{n \in \omega }$ there is a sequence of open intervals $( a_n ) _{n \in \omega }$ which ...
### Is the covering property $\Omega \choose \text{T}$ closed under products?
Suppose that $(X_i)_{i\in I}$ is a family satisfying the covering property $\Omega \choose \text{T}$ (for the definition of this covering property, see this post). Does $\prod_{i\in I} X_i$ ...
