A family $\{A_{\alpha }:\alpha \in \mathbb{N}^{\mathbb{N}}\}$ of sets covering a set $E$ is called a resolution for $E$ if $A_{\alpha }\subseteq A_{\beta }$ whenever $\alpha \leq \beta $. A locally convex space (lcs) $E$ is said to belong to class $\mathfrak{G}$ if there is a resolution $\{A_{\alpha }:\alpha \in \mathbb{N}^{\mathbb{N}}\}$ for $(E^{\prime},\sigma (E^{\prime },E))$ such that each sequence in any $A_{\alpha }$ is equicontinuous. The class $\mathfrak{G}$ contains `almost all' useful locally convex spaces (including $(LF)$-spaces and $(DF)$-spaces). We show that$\;\left( i\right) $ every semi-reflexive lcs $E$ in class $\mathfrak{G}$ is a Lindelöf $\Sigma $-space in the weak topology (this extends a corresponding result of Preiss-Talagrand for WCG Banach spaces) and the weak* dual of $E$ is both $K$-analytic and has countable tightness, $\left( ii\right) $ a barrelled space $E$ has a weakly compact resolution if and only if $E$ is weakly $K$-analytic, and $\left( iii\right) $ if $E$ is barrelled or bornological then $E^{\prime }$ has a weak* compact resolution if and only if it is weak* $K$-analytic. As an additional consequence we provide another approach to show that the weak* dual of a quasi-barrelled space in class $\mathfrak{G}$ is $K$-analytic. These results supplement earlier work of Talagrand, Preiss, Cascales, Ferrando, Kąkol, López Pellicer and Saxon.
