When hereditarily collectionwise Hausdorffness implies regularity

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 1401)


Every collectionwise Hausdorff (CWT2) first countable space is regular. Generalizations of first countability are considered. If X is hereditarily CWT2(HCWT2), blobular, of character N1, and contains no first countable S space, then X is regular. The existence of a first countable S space implies the existence of a nonregular, HCWT2, lob space of character N1. If it is consistent that there are no HCWT2 analogues of S spaces for all regular ordinals τ, then the following is consistent. Every HCWT2 globular space is regular.
