On covering properties by regular closed sets. (English) Zbl 0893.54018
Summary: A topological space \(X\) is [countably] rc-compact (rc-Lindelöf) if every [countable] cover of \(X\) by regular closed sets has a finite (countable) subcover. It is established, among other results, that 1. A space is rc-compact iff its semiregularization is an extension of a compact extremally disconnected space; 2. An uncountable \(T_3\) first countable crowded space is rc-Lindelöf iff it is a Luzin space, and 3. A countably rc-compact \(T_3\) first countable or generalized ordered space is finite.
