Examples and theorems for generalized paracompact topological spaces
In this thesis we answer a number of unsolved problems in generalized paracompact topological spaces. Examples satisfying the T₄ separation axiom are constructed showing the relationship between the properties B(D, ω₀)-refinability, B(D, λ)-refinability, and weak θ̅-refinability. The properties B(D, λ)-refinability and weak θ̅-refinability are shown to be strictly weaker than B(D, ω₀)-refinability.
Sum theorems, mapping theorems, and o—product theorems are obtained for B(D, ω₀)-refinability, weak θ̅-refinability, and several other properties. The σ—product theorem for B(D,ω₀)-refinability, weak θ̅-refinability, and other properties are shown to follow from a new special B(D,ω₀) sum theorem.
