The Darboux property in some families of Baire 1 functions. (English) Zbl 0788.26002

Summary: Denote by \(D\) the family of Darboux functions, by \(P\) the family of Peek functions [D. Peek, Proc. Am. Math. Soc. 30, 303-307 (1971; Zbl 0229.26006)] pointwise discontinuous on each union of sequences of perfect sets, by \(G_ 1\) the family of functions pointwise discontinuous on each non-empty set, and by \(Q\) the family of quasicontinuous functions. I investigate the addition and the multiplication in \(P\) and \(DP\). Moreover, I show thatat \(DP\subset Q\), and that \(f\in G_ 1\) iff for every perfect set \(E\) there is an open interval \(I\) such that \(I\cap E\neq\emptyset\) and \(f| (I\cap E)\) is continuous.
