Characterization of realcompactness and hereditary realcompactness in the class of normal nodec (submaximal) spaces
Is it true in ZFC that every normal submaximal space of non-measurable cardinality is hereditarily realcompact? This question (posed by O. T. Alas et al. (2002)) is given a complete affirmative answer, for a wider class of spaces. In fact, this answer is a part of a bi-conditional statement: A normal nodec space $X$ is hereditarily realcompact if and only if it is realcompact if and only if every closed discrete (or nowhere dense) subset of $X$ has non-measurable cardinality.
