concentric circle space; weak $G_\delta $-diagonal; point-separating $^\ast $-open cover; cardinal function
It is well-known that the concentric circle space has no $G_\delta $-diagonal nor any countable point-separating open cover. In this paper, we reveal two new properties of the concentric circle space, which are the weak versions of $G_\delta $-diagonal and countable point-separating open cover. Then we introduce two new cardinal functions and sharpen some known cardinal inequalities.
