Abstract:

Let T be the family of open subsets of a topological space (not necessarily Hausdorff or even T_0). We prove that if T has a base of cardinality \leq \mu, \lambda\leq \mu< 2^\lambda, \lambda strong limit of cofinality \aleph_0, then T has cardinality \leq \mu or \geq 2^\lambda. This is our main conclusion. First we prove it under some set theoretic assumption, which is clear when \lambda=\mu; then we eliminate the assumption by a theorem on pcf from [Sh 460] motivated originally by this. Next we prove that the simplest examples are the basic ones; they occur in every example (for \lambda=\aleph_0 this fulfill a promise from [Sh 454]). The main result for the case \lambda=\aleph_0 was proved in [Sh 454]. - Version 1994-08-07_10 (26p) published version (19p)
