Exactly \(n\)-resolvable spaces and \(\omega\)-resolvability. (English) Zbl 0998.54026
Summary: We show that any topological space has a decomposition into a union of an open \(\omega\)-resolvable subset and the closure of a countable union of pairwise disjoint open sets each of which, when nonempty, is an \(OE_nR\) space. We present several applications, including characterizations of \(E_nR\) and \(OE_nR\) spaces. We also present the construction of a compact Hausdorff space which is the union of a pair of disjoint irresolvable dense subsets, but which is, nevertheless, \(2^{\mathfrak c}\)-resolvable. Indeed, the space constructed is card-homogeneous and maximally resolvable in the sense of J. G. Ceder [Fundam. Math. 55, 87-93 (1964; Zbl 0139.40401)].
