Abstract: A $ P$-set is one which is interior to any zero set which contains it. An $ F'$-space may be characterized as one in which the closure of a cozero set is a $ P$-set. We study applications of $ P$-sets to the topology of $ F'$-spaces, and certain set-theoretical operations under which the class of $ P$-sets is stable. A. I. Veksler has shown that in a basically disconnected space the closure of an arbitrary union of $ P$-sets is a $ P$-set, while in $ F'$-spaces we are only able to prove this for countable unions. Our main result is an example of a set in the compact $ F$-space $ \beta N\backslash N$ which is not a $ P$-set, but which is the closure of a union of $ P$-sets. The set is related to the almost-convergent functions of G. G. Lorentz.
