Abstract

We will prove that there exists a model of ZFC+“c =” in which every M ⊆ ℝ of cardinality less than continuum c is meager, and such that for every X ⊆ ℝ of cardinality c there exists a continuous function f : ℝ → ℝ with f[X] = [0, 1].

In particular in this model there is no magic set, i.e., a set M ⊆ ℝ such that the equation f[M] = g[M] implies f = g for every continuous nowhere constant functions f,g: ℝ → ℝ.
