Lindelöf property and absolute embeddings. (English) Zbl 0907.54003
The authors’ abstract: “It is proved that a Tychonoff space is Lindelöf if and only if whenever a Tychonoff space \(Y\) contains two disjoint closed copies \(X_{1}\) and \(X_{2}\) of \(X\), then these copies can be separated in \(Y\) by open sets. We also show that a Tychonoff space \(X\) is weakly \(C\)-embedded (relatively normal) in every larger Tychonoff space if and only if \(X\) is either almost compact or Lindelöf (normal almost compact or Lindelöf)”.
