Abstract

We show that $\mathsf {PFA}$ implies that the tightness $t(X_\delta )$ of the $G_\delta $-modification of a Fréchet $\alpha _1$-space $X$ is at most $\omega _1$, while $\Box (\kappa )$ implies that there is a Fréchet $\alpha _1$-space with $G_\delta $-tightness equal to $\kappa $. We use the example constructed from $\Box (\kappa )$ to show that a local version of the bound $t(X_\delta )\le 2^{t(X)L(X)}$ does not hold. We also construct, assuming $\mathsf {MA}$, an example of a Fréchet space whose $G_\delta $-tightness is larger than $\omega _1$.
