This survey presents some recent results connecting set theory with the problems of general topology, primarily giving the applications of classical set theory in general topology and not considering problems involving large numbers. The lectures are completely self-contained--this is a good reference book on modern questions of general topology and can serve as an introduction to the applications of set theory and infinite combinatorics.



"A good reference book on modern questions of general topology."
