Abstract:A topological space $X$ is said to be $e$-separable if $X$ has a $\sigma$-closed-discrete dense subset. Recently, G.\ Gruenhage and D.\ Lutzer showed that $e$-separable PIGO spaces are perfect and asked if $e$-separable monotonically normal spaces are perfect in general. The main purpose of this article is to provide examples of $e$-separable monotonically normal spaces which are not perfect. Extremely normal $e$-separable spaces are shown to be stratifiable.
Keywords: monotonically normal space; $\sigma$-closed-discrete dense set; $e$-separable space; perfect space; perfectly normal space; point network; perfect images of generalized ordered space
