## Abstract

C_{p}(X) denotes the space of continuous real-valued functions on a Tychonoff space X endowed with the topology of pointwise convergence. A Banach space E equipped with the weak topology is denoted by E_{w}. It is unknown whether C_{p}(K) and C(L) _{w} can be homeomorphic for infinite compact spaces K and L (Krupski, Rev R Acad Cienc Exact Fis Nat Ser A Mat (RACSAM) 110:557–563, 2016; Krupski and Marciszewski, J Math Anal Appl 452:646–658, 2017). In this paper we deal with a more general question: does there exist a Banach space E such that E_{w} is homeomorphic to the space C_{p}(X) for some infinite Tychonoff space X? We show that if such homeomorphism exists, then (a) X is a countable union of compact sets X_{n}, n∈ ω, where at least one component X_{n} is non-scattered; (b) the Banach space E necessarily contains an isomorphic copy of the Banach space ℓ_{1}.
