# The set of discontinuity points of separately continuous functions on the products of compact spaces

### Abstract

We solve the problem of constructing separately continuous functions on the product of compact spaces with a given set of discontinuity points. We obtain the following results. 1. For arbitrary \v{C}ech complete spaces $X$, $Y$, and a separable compact perfect projectively nowhere dense zero set $E\subseteq X\times Y$ there exists a separately continuous function $f:X\times Y\to\mathbb R$ the set of discontinuity points, which coincides with $E$. 2. For arbitrary \v{C}ech complete spaces $X$, $Y$, and nowhere dense zero sets $A\subseteq X$ and $B\subseteq Y$ there exists a separately continuous function $f:X\times Y\to\mathbb R$ such that the projections of the set of discontinuity points of $f$ coincides with $A$ and $B$, respectively. We construct an example of Eberlein compacts $X$, $Y$, and nowhere dense zero sets $A\subseteq X$ and $B\subseteq Y$ such that the set of discontinuity points of every separately continuous function $f:X\times Y\to\mathbb R$ does not coincide with $A\times B$, and a $CH$-example of separable Valdivia compacts $X$, $Y$ and separable nowhere dense zero sets $A\subseteq X$ and $B\subseteq Y$ such that the set of discontinuity points of every separately continuous function $f:X\times Y\to\mathbb R$ does not coincide with $A\times B$.
