Abstract: We study productive properties of $ \gamma $ spaces and their relation to other, classic and modern, selective covering properties. Among other things, we prove the following results:

  1. Solving a problem of F. Jordan, we show that for every unbounded tower set $ X\subseteq \mathbb{R}$ of cardinality $ \aleph _1$, the space $ \operatorname {C}_\mathrm {p}(X)$ is productively Fréchet-Urysohn. In particular, the set $ X$ is productively $ \gamma $.
  2. Solving problems of Scheepers and Weiss and proving a conjecture of Babinkostova-Scheepers, we prove that, assuming the Continuum Hypothesis, there are $ \gamma $ spaces whose product is not even Menger.
  3. Solving a problem of Scheepers-Tall, we show that the properties $ \gamma $ and Gerlits-Nagy (*) are preserved by Cohen forcing. Moreover, every Hurewicz space that remains Hurewicz in a Cohen extension must be Rothberger (and thus (*)).
We apply our results to solve a large number of additional problems and use Arhangel'skiĭ duality to obtain results concerning local properties of function spaces and countable topological groups.
