Some remarks on universality properties of $\ell_\infty / c_0$
We prove that if $\mathfrak c$ is not a Kunen cardinal, then there is a uniform Eberlein compact space $K$ such that the Banach space $C(K)$ does not embed isometrically into $\ell_\infty/c_0$. We prove a similar result for isomorphic embeddings. Our arguments are minor modifications of the proofs of analogous results for Corson compacta obtained by S. Todorčević. We also construct a consistent example of a uniform Eberlein compactum whose space of continuous functions embeds isomorphically into $\ell_\infty/c_0$, but fails to embed isometrically. As far as we know it is the first example of this kind.
