Preimages of Baire spaces. (English) Zbl 0815.54010
The question considered in this paper is: When must the domain of a function that maps onto a Baire space be a Baire space? Some positive results are given using the concept of a nowhere-dense-set preserving (nd-preserving) function. For example, if there is a feebly open nd- preserving function mapping \(X\) onto a Baire space, then \(X\) is a Baire space. A number of examples are used to illustrate how the nd-preserving property relates to other properties of functions.
