*Regular methods of summability in some locally convex spaces*

Comment.Math.Univ.Carolinae 50,3 (2009) 401-411.**Abstract:**Suppose that $X$ is a Fr\'{e}chet space, $\langle a_{ij}\rangle $ is a regular method of summability and $(x_{i})$ is a bounded sequence in $X$. We prove that there exists a subsequence $(y_{i})$ of $(x_{i})$ such that: either (a) all the subsequences of $(y_{i})$ are summable to a common limit with respect to $\langle a_{ij}\rangle $; or (b) no subsequence of $(y_{i})$ is summable with respect to $\langle a_{ij}\rangle $. This result generalizes the Erdös-Magidor theorem which refers to summability of bounded sequences in Banach spaces. We also show that two analogous results for some $\omega_{1}$-locally convex spaces are consistent to ZFC.
