Spaces without remote points

Eric Karel van Douwen and Jan van Mill

Vol. 105 (1983), No. 1, 69–75

All spaces considered are completely regular and X denotes βX X. The point x X is called a remote point of X if xClβXA for each nowhere dense subset A of X. If y Y , then the space Y is said to be extremally disconnected at y if yŪV whenever U and V are disjoint open sets. In this paper we construct two noncompact σ-compact spaces X, one locally compact and one nowhere locally compact, such that X has no remote points, and in fact such that βX is not extremally disconnected at any point.
