# UNIVERSAL SPACES AND MAPPING

**S.D. Iliadis**

ISBN **0444515860**

Pages **576**

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.
