Abstract

In every infinite-dimensional Fréchet space $X$, we construct a linear subspace $E$ such that $E$ is an $F_{\sigma \delta \sigma }$-subset of $X$ and contains a retract $R$ so that $R\times E^\omega $ is not homeomorphic to $E^\omega $. This shows that Toruńczyk's Factor Theorem fails in the Borel case.
