\(\alpha\)-paracompact subsets and well-situated subsets. (English) Zbl 0664.54015
In this paper \(\alpha\)-paracompact and well-situated subsets are further examined. A subset E of a space X is \(\alpha\)-paracompact if every covering of E by open sets has a refinement by open sets, locally finite in X, which covers E [C. E. Aull, Proc. 2nd Prague Topol. Symp. 1966, 45-51 (1967; Zbl 0162.264)] and is well-situated in X if for every paracompact \(T_ 2\) space Y, \(E\times Y\) is \(\alpha\)-paracompact in \(X\times Y\) [H. W. Martin, Topology Appl. 12, 305-313 (1981; Zbl 0483.54011)]. Covering properties of \(\alpha\)-paracompact and well- situated subsets are obtained, \(\alpha\)-paracompact and well-situated subsets are characterized in regular spaces, the behavior of \(\alpha\)- paracompact and well-situated subsets under perfect mappings is studied, and it is shown that the class of all paracompact \(T_ 2\) spaces which are well-situated in every paracompact \(T_ 2\) space in which they are embedded as closed subsets, is perfect.
