  • Fotis H. Mavridis (a1)

In this paper we provide a unified approach, based on methods of descriptive set theory, for proving some classical selection theorems. Among them is the zero-dimensional Michael selection theorem, the Kuratowski–Ryll-Nardzewski selection theorem, as well as a known selection theorem for hyperspaces.
