Abstract: All spaces below are Tychonov. We define the projective - character of a space as the supremum of the values where ranges over all (Tychonov) continuous images of . Our main result says that every space has a -base whose order is ; that is, every point in is contained in at most -many members of the -base. Since for compact , this is a significant generalization of a celebrated result of Shapirovskii.
