Definition Edit

A Tychonoff space is called realcompact if every ultrafilter of zero sets with cip is fixed?.

Property Edit

  • A space is realcompact if and only if it is homeomorphic to a closed subspace of a product of real lines.
  • Every Tychonoff Lindeloef space is realcompact.
  • If X is a Tychonoff space, the following conditions are equivalent:
    1. X is realcompact;
    2. X is the intersection of all cozero sets in the Stone-Cech compactification of X;
    3. X is the intersection of all σ-compact subspaces of the Stone-Cech compactification of X;
    4. every maximal cozero cover has a countable subcover;
    5. if A is a stable family of closed subsets in X with fip, A has a nonempty intersection.
  • The image under a perfect mapping of a normal realcompact space is also a realcompact space.
  • Realcompact implies both almost realcompact and almost* realcompact.
  • X is realcompact iff for each point p in βX-X, there exists a continuous function f on βX such that f(p)=0 and f is positive on X (where βX denotes the Stone-Cech compactification).
  • If C_ρ(X) represents the collection of continuous functions with realcompact support, then X is realcompact iff C_ρ(X) = C(X).
  • See the following figure for implication between the related properties.
