Contrasting symmetric porosity and porosity. (English) Zbl 0922.26003
The aim of the paper is to compare the behaviour of sets with respect to symmetric porosity and porosity. The authors have found several similarities as well as several differences. As an example of the first let us quote the following Theorem: If \(0< p<1\) and \(E\) is a closed, \(p\)-symmetrically porous set, then there exists a number \(q\), \(p< q<1\), such that the set \(\{x\in E: \text{sp} (E,x)\geq q\}\) is residual in \(E\). The difference is exhibited in the following example: Given \(0< p<1\), there exists a \(G_\delta\) set \(E\subset [0,1]\) such that for each \(x\in E\), \(\text{sp} (E,x)=p\).
