## Abstract:

We study some properties of smooth Borel sets with respect to a Borel equivalence relation, showing some analogies with the collection of countable sets from a descriptive set theoretic point of view. We found what can be seen as an analog of the hyperarithmetic points in the context of smooth sets. We generalize a theorem of Weiss from ${\mathbf {Z}}$-actions to actions by arbitrary countable groups. We show that the $\sigma$-ideal of closed smooth sets is $\Pi _1^1$ non-Borel.## References
