A Diagonalization Property between Hurewicz and Menger
In classical works, Hurewicz and Menger introduced two diagonalization properties for sequences of open covers. Hurewicz found a combinatorial characterization of these notions in terms of continuous images. Recently, Scheepers has shown that these notions are particular cases in a large family of diagonalization schemas. One of the members of this family is weaker than the Hurewicz property and stronger than the Menger property, and it was left open whether it can be characterized combinatorially in terms of continuous images. We give a positive answer. We also find some additivity numbers for these classes. This paper can serve as an exposition of this fascinating subject.
