Title: On Radon-Nikodym compact spaces

Abstact: We solve an old problem of Isaac Namioka proving that continuous images of Radon-Nikodym compacta do not have to be Radon-Nikodym.  The construction requires certain combinatorial guessing principle and is based on topological resolutions. We discuss some consequences in the Banach space theory. This result was obtained together with Antonio Avilés.
