## Abstract

A Tychonoff space X_{p} = X ∪ {p} is called a one-point extension of X if X is dense in X_{p} and the reminder X_{p} \X consists of the singleton {p}. We study the following problem: Characterize the spaces X such that every (some) one-point extension X_{p} of X has a given local topological property P at the point p. The list of properties P considered in the paper includes, among others: 1) {p} is a G_{δ}-set in Xp; 2) X_{p} admits a local countable base at p; 3) X_{p} has the Fréchet-Urysohn property at p; 4) X_{p} has countable tightness at p. One of our main results states that a Tychonoff space X is Lindelöf (not pseudocompact) iff the point p is of type G_{δ} in X_{p}, for every (for some, respectively) one-point extension X_{p} of X. We pose several open problems for various concrete properties P.
