compact Hausdorff space $X$; the sup-norm algebra $C(X)$ of all complex-valued continuous functions on $X$; its closed subalgebras (called function algebras); its closed subspaces (called function spaces); measure orthogonal to a function algebra or to a function space
It is well known that any function algebra has an essential set. In this note we define an essential set for an arbitrary function space (not necessarily algebra) and prove that any function space has an essential set.
