Colloquium - Gareth H. Dales - The hyper-Stonean envelope of a compact space
Wednesday, 14. March 2018, 13:30 - 14:30
Garth H. Dales' Talk:

The hyper-Stonean envelope of a compact space

Abstract: Let K be a compact space. Then sitting on K is the Banach function algebra C(K) of all
continuous functions on K. Its dual Banach space is M(K), the space of all measures on K. These
spaces also have dual spaces that prescribe other compact spaces, including the hyper-Stonean
envelope of K. I shall talk about these spaces, draw some diagrams, and conclude with some new
results from joint work with Grzegorz Plebanek.
