Abstract: For an infinite cardinal , denotes the least measurable cardinal, if one exists, not less than . We give easy proofs of generalizations of some results on realcompact spaces. Among these we prove the following generalization of a theorem of A. Kato.
Let be a collection of spaces each having at least two elements. Then the -box product is -compact if and only if either is -compact for each and or .
