### A question on Borel measurability

Let $X$ be a compact metric space. Given a map $x\mapsto E_x$ where $E_x\subset X$ is a Borel set in X. What can be said about the Borel measurability of the set $F_E:=\{(x,y)\in X\times X:y\in E_x\}$?...

### Not all sets in $\mathbb{R}$ are Lebesgue measurable sets [duplicate]

Let $\mathcal{B}(\mathbb{R})$ be the Borel-sigma algebra on $\mathbb{R}$, and let $\mathcal{L}$ be the Lebesgue sigma-algebra which is a unique extension of $\mathcal{B}(\mathbb{R})$ with respect to ...

### Is there a set $A \subset [0,1]$ such that both $A$ and $[0,1] \setminus A$ intersect every positive-measure set?

Is there a set $A \subset [0,1]$ such that for every Borel set $B \subset [0,1]$ of positive Lebesgue measure, both $B \cap A$ and $B \setminus A$ are non-empty? This is, in a sense, the "measure-...

### Do non-measurable sets exist for $\{0,1\}^{\mathbb N}$?

It is well known that a non-Lebesgue measurable, and hence non Borel measurable subset of $[0,1]$ exists. However, if I consider the set $\Omega=\{0,1\}^{\mathbb N}$ in the infinite independent coin ...

### How to prove that cardinality Borel $\sigma$-algebra equals the cardinality of $\mathbb R$? [duplicate]

My understanding at this point is that to assign a probability measure to a random variable defined on the real line, we need a Borel $\mathscr{B}$ sigma algebra, because otherwise we wouldn't be able ...

### How many Borel sets are on an infinite Polish Space?

I am learning Descriptive set theory, and my question is how many Borel sets are on an infinite Polish space? I think they have the cardinality of the continuum, but I just do not see how to prove it....

### Borel sigma algebra - why smallest?

I was wondering why Borel algebra $B(X)$ is defined to be the smallest sigma algebra containing all open subsets of X. If it contains all the subsets, then how can any other sigma algebra have more ...

### Existence of non-Borel subset

I got the following statement: For each set $N \subseteq \mathbb R^n$ with cardinality of the continuum $\#N=\mathfrak c$ there is a subset $M \subseteq N$ with $M \notin \mathcal B(\mathbb R^n)$. ...

### Cardinality Of Borel Sets

I was trying to show that Borel $\sigma$ algebra is smaller than lebesgue measurable sets. I could come up with a proof for the cardinality of lebesgue measurable sets being $2^c$. Cardinality of ...

### About the cardinality of the Borelians in the real line. [duplicate]

Is true that the set of the Borelians in $\mathbb{R}$ has the same cardinality of $\mathbb{R}$? I need of the Continuum Hypothesis for to prove this?
### Why are there exactly 2$^\omega$ perfect subsets of the real numbers?
How can you proof that there are $2^{\omega}$ perfect subsets of the real numbers?
Suppose there is a function $f:A\to B$ where $A,\,B\subseteq\mathbb{R}$, is there any example for this function being NOT Borel function? Well the question came up to be when I was reading the ...
