Description

The book is devoted to universality problems. A new approach to these problems is given using some specific spaces. Since the construction of these specific spaces is set-theoretical, the given theory can be applied to different topics of Topology such as: universal mappings, dimension theory, action of groups, inverse spectra, isometrical embeddings, and so on.

Key Features

· Universal spaces · Universal mappings · Dimension theory · Actions of groups · Isometric Universal Spaces

Readership
