Menger spaces, non-meager P-filter, pointwise convergence topology


In a paper by Bella, Tokgös and Zdomskyy it is asked whether there exists a Tychonoff space X such that the remainder of Cp(X) in some compactification is Menger but not σ-compact. In this paper we prove that it is consistent that such space exists and in particular its existence follows from the existence of a Menger ultrafilter.
