Streszczenie

We consider the question of whether ${\mathcal P}(\omega )$ is a subalgebra whenever it is a quotient of a Boolean algebra by a countably generated ideal. This question was raised privately by Murray Bell. We obtain two partial answers under the open coloring axiom. Topologically our first result is that if a zero-dimensional compact space has a zero-set mapping onto $\beta {\mathbb N}$, then it has a regular closed zero-set mapping onto $\beta {\mathbb N}$. The second result is that if the compact space has density at most $\omega _1$, then it will map onto $\beta {\mathbb N}$ if it contains a zero-set that maps onto $\beta {\mathbb N}$.
