### Bidi: A new cardinal characteristic of the continuum?

This question assumes familiarity with combinatorial cardinal characteristics of the continuum. Identify an infinite set $a\subseteq\mathbb{N}$ with its increasing enumeration. Thus, for each natural ...

### 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 $X$...

### Dual Borel conjecture in Laver's model

A set $X\subseteq 2^\omega$ of reals is of strong measure zero (smz) if $X+M\not=2^\omega$ for every meager set $M$. (This is a theorem of Galvin-Mycielski-Solovay, but for the question I am going to ...

### $\mathfrak{ufo}$: An unidentified combinatorial cardinal characteristic of the continuum?

An ultrafilter ornament is a chain of free filters on $\mathbb{N}$ that are not ultrafilters, whose union is an ultrafilter. Let $\mathfrak{ufo}$ be the minimal cardinality of an ultrafilter ...

### 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 ...

### Strong measure zero sets and selection principles

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 ...

### A ridiculous combinatorial cardinal characteristic of the continuum?

This question assumes familiarity with combinatorial cardinal characteristics of the continuum. It is abstracted out of a question in a joint research with Jialiang He. I hope we've got the ...

### 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 ...

### 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 $\prod_{i\in I} X_i$ ...

### Countable union of Menger spaces

A topological space $X$ has Menger's property $\textsf{S}_{\mbox{fin}}(\mathcal{O}, \mathcal{O})$ if, for each sequence of open covers, $\mathcal{U}_1, \mathcal{U}_2, \cdots$, we can select finite ...
### 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 $Y$.
