Analytic contraction of the Stone-Cech compactification of $\mathbb C$

Let $S$ be the Stone-Cech compactification of $\mathbb C$. Then any meromorphic function $f:\mathbb C \to \mathbb{CP}^1$ extends to $S$. Do the meromorphic functions separate the points of $S$? I ...

A basic question on Stone-Cech compactification of $\mathbb{Z}$

Can the identity isomorphism on the additive group $\mathbb{Z}$ be extended to a non-identity semigroup isomorphism on $\beta\mathbb{Z}$, and still preserves $\beta\mathbb{Z}\setminus\mathbb{Z}$? ...

Complemented subspaces of $C(\beta\mathbb N\times \beta\mathbb N)$

Problem. Is there any complemented subspace in the Banach space $C(\beta\mathbb N\times\beta\mathbb N)$, not isomorphic to $c_0$, $c_0\oplus C(\beta\mathbb N)$, $C(\beta\mathbb N)$, $c_0(C(\beta\...

Is there a 'local' version of Near Coherence of Filters?

The axiom Near Coherence of Filters (NCF) is known to be independent of ZFC. Axiom (NCF I): For any two free ultrafilters $\mathcal D$ and $\mathcal E$ on $\mathbb N$, there exist finite-to-one ...

Remote points in $\beta X$

It is known that in general convergence by sequences is not enough to account for all points in $\beta X \setminus X$, where $\beta X$ refers to the Stone-Cech compactification of a topological space $...

Version of Stone Weierstrass for functions not vanishing at infinity

I am trying to see what is known about uniform density of function spaces in $C(\mathbb{R}^n)$ or $C_b(\mathbb{R}^n)$ (bounded continuous functions on $\mathbb{R}^n$). By uniform density, I mean ...

Embeddability into $\beta\omega$ and $\omega^*$

It is well known that under CH every totally-disconnected compact F-space of weight at most $\omega_1$ can be embedded into the remainder $\omega^*=\beta\omega\setminus\omega$ of the Cech-Stone ...

On the compactification of partial semigroups

We begin by introducing some relevant definitions. Definition: A $\textit{partial semigroup}$ is a pair $(S,.)$ where $.$ maps a subset of $S \times S$ to $S$ and for all $a,b,c \in S, (a.b).c=a.(b.c)...

Continuity of multiplicative character

Let $G$ be a discrete group and $\beta (G)$ denote the Stone-Cech compactification of $G$, a right topological semigroup. By a multiplicative character, I mean a mapping that preserves multiplication ...

Stone-Cech compactification of $\mathbb{R}^n$ and smooth functions

I am currently attending a course where we are now covering the Stone-Cech compactification. Today we proved in some detail that extensions of bounded smooth functions on $\mathbb{R}^n$ to $\beta\...

Type I subspaces of the Stone Cech compactification of $\omega$

EDIT: I found a construction, see below. I decided not to delete the question in case someone is interested. A space $X$ is of Type I if $X=\cup_{\alpha<\omega_1} X_\alpha$, where each $X_\alpha$ ...

Can we express separability of a ray-remainder in terms of the function algebra?

Let $X = [0, 1)$ be a ray and $C(X)$ the algebra of bounded continuous real functions. The spectrum of $C(X)$ is the Stone-Cech compactification $\beta [0,1) $ of the ray. It's easy to see the ...
