Countable dense homogeneous spaces under Martin’s axiom
We show that Martin’s axiom for countable partial orders implies the existence of a countable dense homogeneous Bernstein subset of the reals. Using Martin’s axiom we derive a characterization of the countable dense homogeneous spaces among the separable metric spaces of cardinality less thanc. Also, we show that Martin’s axiom implies the existence of a subset of the Cantor set which isλ-dense homogeneous for everyλ <c.
