A few levels of retracts were achieved. The first level is obviously the retract in the sense of Borsuk, and the second level is reflexive homotopy and its properties.</p> C. R. Parvathy S.

Some properties are discussed for which the lattice \(F_{T,L}\) is complemented.</p> Pinky .

These are stronger forms of connectedness, \(\alpha\)-connectedness, semi-connectedness, pre-connectedness, \(\beta\)-connectedness respectively. The properties of these notions follow the same pattern.</p> B. K. Tyagi Sumit Singh Manoj Bhardwaj Harsh V. S.

These different approaches of investigation produced significant charecterizations and properties of this important class of spaces. In [3] we introduced three forms of generalized continuous functions by studying the class of u-continuous functions of Joseph, Kwack and Nayar [9] using the concepts of an α-set of Njastad [13]. The generalized continuous forms introduced there are: αu-continuous, semi-αu-contnuous and strongly u-continuous functions. In the present study we investigate the class of compact and extremally disconnected spaces using these generalized continuous functions.</p> </div> </div> </div> Zeinab Bandpey Bhamini M. P.
