For a Banach space E and its bidual space E'', the function k(H) defined on bounded
subsets H of E measures how far H is from being σ(E,E')-relatively compact in E. This concept, introduced independently by Granero, ...

The paper deals with the following problem: characterize Tichonov spaces X whose realcompactification ¿X is a Lindelöf ¿-space. There are many situations (both in topology and functional analysis) where Lindelöf ¿ (even ...

[EN] A subset Y of the dual closed unit ball B_{E*} of a Banach space E is called a Rainwater set for E if every bounded sequence of E that converges pointwise on Y converges weakly in E. In this paper, topological properties ...

[EN] Following Schachermayer, a subset B of an algebra A of subsets of Ω is said to have the N-property if a B-pointwise bounded subset Mof ba(A)is uniformly bounded on A, where ba(A) is the Banach space of the real ...

Using the index of Nagami we get new topological cardinal inequalities for spaces Cp(X).
A particular case of Theorem 1 states that if L ⊆ Cp(X) is a Lindelöf Σ-space and the
Nagami index Nag(X) of X is less or equal ...
