Remainders of metrizable spaces and a generalization of Lindelöf \(\Sigma\)-spaces. (English) Zbl 1236.54006
The remainder under any compactification of any metrizable space of weight \(\leq2^\omega\) is a Lindelöf \(\Sigma\)-space. However there is a locally separable, nowhere locally compact, metrizable space \(X\) with \(|X|\leq(2^\omega)^+\) such that no remainder of \(X\) is a Lindelöf \(\Sigma\)-space. On the other hand, the remainder under any compactification of any metrizable space is a charming space (i.e., a space \(X\) having a Lindelöf \(\Sigma\)-subspace \(Y\) such that for each open neighbourhood \(U\) of \(Y\) in \(X\) the subspace \(X\setminus U\) is a Lindelöf \(\Sigma\)-space). Properties of charming spaces are investigated.
