Compact foliations with finite transverse LS category. (English) Zbl 1404.57046

Main results (Corollary 1.3): Let \(\mathcal F\) be a compact \(C^1\)-foliation of a compact manifold \(M\). If \(M\) admits a covering by transversely categorical open saturated sets, then \(\mathcal F\) is compact Hausdorff.
This corollary follows from a technical Theorem 1.2 asserting that there is no transversely saturated covering of so-called bad spaces.
