The Sorgenfrey line is not consonant
In Exercise 5.4.12 of the book, I ask the reader to prove that neither the space of rationals, Q, nor the Sorgenfrey line, Rℓ, is consonant. But the proofs I had in mind were much too simpleminded to stand any … Continue reading

Bitopological spaces and stable compactness
A while back (in March 2019, to be precise), Tomáš Jakl told me that he had a nice, short proof of the fact that the categories of stably compact spaces (and perfect maps) and compact pospaces (and continuous orderpreserving maps) … Continue reading

Plotkin’s powerdomain and the hedgehog
There are three classical powerdomains in domain theory, named after Hoare, Smyth, and Plotkin. The first two are natural and well studied, and the third one is intricate and intriguing. To start with, there are several possible definitions for a … Continue reading

Quasicontinuous domains and the Smyth powerdomain
“Quasicontinuous domains and the Smyth powerdomain” is the title of a very nice 2013 paper by Reinhold Heckmann and Klaus Keimel. I will not talk about quasicontinuous domains in this post. Rather, I will mention three pearls that this paper … Continue reading

Quasiuniform spaces IV: Formal balls—a proposal
Formal balls are an extraordinarily useful notion in the study of quasimetric, and even hemimetric spaces. Is there any way of extending the notion to the case of quasiuniform spaces? This is what I would like to start investigating. This … Continue reading

Quasiuniform spaces III: Smythcompleteness, symcompactness
We embark on the study of notions of completeness for quasiuniform spaces, and we concentrate on Smythcompleteness. We will see that at least two familiar theorems from the realm of quasimetric spaces generalize to quasiuniform spaces: all Smythcomplete quasiuniform spaces … Continue reading

Quasiuniform spaces II: Stably compact spaces
There is a standard result in the theory of uniform spaces that shows (again) how magical compact Hausdorff space can be: for every compact Hausdorff space X, there is a unique uniformity that induces the topology of X, and its … Continue reading

QuasiUniform Spaces I: Pervin QuasiUniformities, Pervin Spaces
A uniform space is a natural generalization of the notion of a metric space, on which completeness still makes sense. It is rather puzzling that I managed to avoid the subject of quasiuniform spaces in something like the 7 years … Continue reading

On the word topology, and beyond
Today I (Jean G.L.) have the pleasure to have a guest, Aliaume Lopez. We are going to talk about the word topology on X*. In the book, there is a socalled Topological Higman Lemma that says that, if X is … Continue reading

Chains and nested spaces
A chain is a totally ordered poset, and a nested space is a topological space whose lattice of open sets is a chain. That may seem like a curious notion, although you might say that the Scott topology on the … Continue reading
