Adequate families of sets and Corson compacts. (English) Zbl 0586.54022
It is known that the space \(C_ p(X)\) is Lindelöf for every Corson compact X and if \(C_ p(Y)\) is a Lindelöf \(\Sigma\)-space (with a compact space Y) then Y is a Corson compact. With the use of the notions of a bush and an adequate family the author constructs a Corson compact X for which the space \(C_ p(X)\) fails to be a Lindelöf \(\Sigma\)-space. The construction of X depends on the existence of a Souslin tree and answers (in the negative) the question of A. V. Arkhangel’skij. The authors examined also the connections between the notions of an adequate family and Eberlein (Corson) compacts.
