Compact Spaces Generated by Retractions
This chapter presents several classes of nonmetrizable compact spaces that correspond to well-known classes of Banach spaces with many projections. In particular, we discuss the class of Valdivia compact spaces and its subclasses: Corson and Eberlein compact spaces. We discuss a general class of compact spaces obtained by limits of continuous retractive sequences. We also introduce the notion of a retractional skeleton, dual to projectional skeletons in Banach spaces. The last section contains an overview of Eberlein compact spaces with some classical results and examples relevant to the subjects of previous chapters.
