Abstract:

We study category counterparts of the notion of a universal measure zero set of reals.

We say that a set $A\subseteq {\mathbb R}$ is universally meager if every Borel isomorphic image of $A$ is meager in ${\mathbb R}$. We give various equivalent definitions emphasizing analogies with the universally null sets of reals.

In particular, two problems emerging from an earlier work of Grzegorek are solved.
