Images of not Lindelöf spaces and their squares. (English) Zbl 0861.54002

Summary: If \(X\) is not Lindelöf and either \(X\) is locally compact or some closed \(A\) in \(X\) satisfies \(d(A)<L(A)\), then \(X^2\) has a not realcompact continuous image. If \(X\) is locally Lindelöf but not Lindelöf or if \(X\) is not linearly Lindelöf then either \(X^2\) has a not realcompact continuous image or some closed subspace of \(X\) maps continuously onto a regular uncountable cardinal. If \(X\) is either locally Lindelöf or not linearly Lindelöf and \(X\) is normal, then \(X^2\) has a not realcompact continuous image.
