The (positive) unique structure theorem
There is an amazing theorem in the theory of analytic spaces, called the unique structure theorem: any two countable families F1 and F2 of Borel subsets of an analytic space X that separate the points of X generate the same … Continue reading

Compact semilattices without small semilattices II: Gierz’s counterexample
We pursue last month’s post, written with Zhenchao Lyu, and we describe Gierz’s example of a compact semilattice — namely, a compact Hausdorff topological semilattice — which does not have small semilattices. It is a bit simpler than Jimmie Lawson’s … Continue reading

Compact semilattices without small semilattices I: interval homomorphisms, products, and the Hoare hyperspace
I have already talked about compact semilattices before, but there is a lot more to say, especially on the subject of having small semilattices or not. Zhenchao Lyu is joining me this month, and we will pursue this next month. … Continue reading

Scott’s formula
There is a wellknown formula in domain theory, which, given a monotonic map f from a basis B of a continuous poset X to a dcpo Y, produces the largest continuous map f’ defined on the whole of X and … Continue reading

The fundamental theorem of compact semilattices
Boundedcomplete domains, or bcdomains, are an amazingly rich kind of continuous domains. They form a Cartesianclosed category, and they are the densely injective topological spaces, among other properties. One characterization of bcdomains which I have not included in the book … Continue reading

Exponentiable locales II: the exponentiable locales are the continuous frames
Two months ago, we have seen that every exponentiable locale had to be continuous, as a frame. We will see that the converse holds: the continuous frames are exactly the exponentiable locales. The result is due to Martin Hyland in … Continue reading

The BanaschewskiLawsonErshov observation on separate vs. joint continuity
Joint continuity is a stronger property than separate continuity. In what cases are those properties equivalent? The question was solved, partially, by Yuri Ershov in 1997, and completely by Bernhard Banaschewski in 1977 (apparently with a gap in the proof) … Continue reading

Exponentiable locales I: every exponentiable locale is continuous
The exponentiable objects of Top are exactly the corecompact spaces. Through Stone duality, the corecompact spaces are related to the continuous frames. So here is a wild guess: would the exponentiable locales be exactly the continuous frames? That is indeed … Continue reading

The Seminar on Continuity in Semilattices
Recently, Achim Jung sent me a message from Jimmie Lawson, and suggested that I might be interested in posting the information on this blog. The red book [1] is a precious source of information on domain theory, and if you … Continue reading

Topological Functors II: the Cartesianclosed category of Cmaps
Some time ago, I gave an introduction to topological functors. They form a pretty brilliant categorical generalization of topological spaces. The point of today’s post is to give one particular example of the fact that you can somehow generalize some … Continue reading
