The Conquest of Topology by Algebra, or, Topological Spaces as Relational Beta-Modules

Tuesday, March 23, 2010 -
12:30pm to 1:30pm
We explore the relationship between topological spaces and modules of the ultrafilter monad, Beta. Several basic properties of topological spaces X are rephrased as properties of "convergence" relations $BX--->X$.
