Alexandroff duplicate, ˇCech–Stone compactification, Compact, Isolated point, T1-complementary, Transversal topology


We present an example of a compact Hausdorff self T1-complementary space without isolated points. This answers Question 3.11 from [A compact Hausdorff topology that is a T1-complementof itself, Fund. Math. 175 (2002), 163–173] affirmatively.
