Pseudocompact Whyburn spaces need not be Fréchet. (English) Zbl 1028.54004
Spaces which are determined by almost closed subspaces are called Whyburn spaces; these spaces were introduced by G. T. Whyburn [ibid. 24, 181–185 (1970; Zbl 0197.48602)] and later studied by several authors under the name AP-spaces. The authors give some necessary and sufficient conditions for a \(P\)-space to be Whyburn, show that a linearly ordered topological space is Whyburn iff it is club incomplete and that a linearly ordered Lindelöf \(\Sigma\)-space is Whyburn iff it is first countable. Also, they give examples of a space of uncountable tightness which is a Tychonoff pseudocompact scattered Whyburn space, a weakly Whyburn regular Lindelöf \(P\)-space and a Lindelöf linearly ordered Whyburn space, respectively.
Remark: Conditions for a Whyburn space to be a Fréchet space were given by Ch. E. Aull [Czech. Math. J. 29(104), 178–186 (1979; Zbl 0424.54013)].
