Positive Definite Functions And Dual Pairs Of Locally Convex Spaces, Daniel Alpay, Saak Gabriyelyan 2018 Chapman University

Positive Definite Functions And Dual Pairs Of Locally Convex Spaces, Daniel Alpay, Saak Gabriyelyan

Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science Faculty Articles and Research

Using pairs of locally convex topological vector spaces in duality and topologies defined by directed families of sets bounded with respect to the duality, we prove general factorization theorems and general dilation theorems for operator-valued positive definite functions.

Disjoint Infinity Borel Functions, Daniel Hathaway 2017 University of Denver

Disjoint Infinity Borel Functions, Daniel Hathaway

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

Consider the statement that every uncountable set of reals can be surjected onto R by a Borel function. This is implied by the statement that every uncountable set of reals has a perfect subset. It is also implied by a new statement D which we will discuss: for each real a there is a Borel function fa : RtoR and for each function g : RtoR there is a countable set G(g) of reals such that the following is true: for each a in R and for each function g : R to R, if fa is disjoint from g ...


On A Construction Of Some Class Of Metric Spaces, Dariusz Bugajewski 2017 Adam Mickiewicz University of Poznan

On A Construction Of Some Class Of Metric Spaces, Dariusz Bugajewski

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

In this talk we are going to describe Sz´az’s construction of some class of metric spaces. Most of all we will analyze topological properties of metric spaces obtained by using Sz´az’s construction. In particular, we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for completeness of metric spaces obtained in this way. Moreover, we will discuss the relation between Sz´az’s construction and the “linking construction”. A particular attention will be drawn to the “floor” metric, the analysis of which provides some interesting observations.


On Di-Injective T0-Quasi-Metric Spaces, Collins Amburo Agyingi 2017 North-West University (South Africa)

On Di-Injective T0-Quasi-Metric Spaces, Collins Amburo Agyingi

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

We prove that every q-hyperconvex T0-quasi-metric space (X, d) is di-injective without appealing to Zorn’s lemma. We also demonstrate that QX as constructed by Kemajou et al. and Q(X) (the space of all Katˇetov function pairs on X) are di-injective. Moreover we prove that di-injective T0-quasi-metric spaces do not contain proper essential extensions. Among other results, we state a number of ways in which the the di-injective envelope of a T0-quasi-metric space can be characterized.


Some New Completeness Properties In Topological Spaces, Cetin Vural, Süleyman Önal 2017 Gazi University

Some New Completeness Properties In Topological Spaces, Cetin Vural, Süleyman Önal

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

One of the most widely known completeness property is the completeness of metric spaces and the other one being of a topological space in the sense of Cech. It is well known that a metrizable space X is completely metrizable if and only if X is Cech-complete. One of the generalisations of completeness of metric spaces is subcompactness. It has been established that, for metrizable spaces, subcompactness is equivalent to Cech-completeness. Also the concept of domain representability can be considered as a completeness property. In [1], Bennett and Lutzer proved that Cech-complete spaces are domain representable. They also proved, in ...


A New Class Of Dendrites Having Unique Second Symmetric Product, David Maya, José G. Anaya, Fernando Orozco Zitli 2017 Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Mexico

A New Class Of Dendrites Having Unique Second Symmetric Product, David Maya, José G. Anaya, Fernando Orozco Zitli

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

The second symmetric product of a continuum X, F2(X), is the hyperspace consisting of all nonempty subsets of X having at most two points. A continuum X has unique hyperspace F2(X) provided that each continuum Y satisfying that F2(X) and F2(Y) are homeomorphic must be homeomorphic to X. In this talk, a new class of dendrites having unique F2(X) will be presented.


Compactness Via Adherence Dominators, Bhamini M. P. Nayar, Terrence A. Edwards, James E. Joseph, Myung H. Kwack 2017 Morgan State University

Compactness Via Adherence Dominators, Bhamini M. P. Nayar, Terrence A. Edwards, James E. Joseph, Myung H. Kwack

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

This talk is based on a joint work by T. A. Edwards, J. E. Joseph, M. H. Kwack and B. M. P. Nayar that apperared in the Journal of Advanced studies in Topology, Vol. 5 (4), 2014), 8 - 15. B

An adherence dominator on a topological space X is a function π from the collection of filterbases on X to the family of closed subsets of X satisfying A(Ω) ⊆ π(Ω) where A(Ω) is the adherence of Ω. The notations π(Ω) and A(Ω) are used for the values of the functions π and A and π ...


Cohen Reals And The Sequential Order Of Groups, Alexander Shibakov 2017 Tennessee Technological University

Cohen Reals And The Sequential Order Of Groups, Alexander Shibakov

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

We show that adding uncountably many Cohen reals to a model of diamond results in a model with no countable sequential group with an intermediate sequential order. The same model has an uncountable group of sequential order 2. We also discuss related questions.


On The Chogoshvili Homology Theory Of Continuous Maps Of Compact Spaces, Anzor Beridze, Vladimer Baladze 2017 Batumi Shota Rustaveli State University

On The Chogoshvili Homology Theory Of Continuous Maps Of Compact Spaces, Anzor Beridze, Vladimer Baladze

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

In this paper an exact homology functor from the category MorC of continuous maps of compact Hausdorff spaces to the category LES of long exact sequences of abelian groups is defined (cf. [2], [3], [5]). This functor is an extension of the Hu homology theory, which is uniquely defined on the category of continuous maps of finite CW complexes and is constructed without the relative homology groups [9]. To define the given homology functor we use the Chogoshvili construction of projective homology theory [7], [8]. For each continuous map f:X → Y of compact spaces, using the notion of ...


Entropy Of Induced Continuum Dendrite Homeomorphisms, Jennyffer Bohorquez, Alexander Arbieto 2017 Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro

Entropy Of Induced Continuum Dendrite Homeomorphisms, Jennyffer Bohorquez, Alexander Arbieto

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

Let f: D → D be a dendrite homeomorphism. Let C(D) denote the hyperspace of all nonempty connected compact subsets of D endowed with the Hausdorff metric. Let C(f):C(D) → C(D) be the induced continuum homeomorphism. In this talk we sketch the proof of the following result: If there exists a nonrecurrent branch point then the topological entropy of C(f) is ∞.


Sequential Order Of Compact Scattered Spaces, Alan Dow 2017 University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Sequential Order Of Compact Scattered Spaces, Alan Dow

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

A space is sequential if the closure of set can be obtained by iteratively adding limits of converging sequences. The sequential order of a space is a measure of how many iterations are required. A space is scattered if every non-empty set has a relative isolated point. It is not known if it is consistent that there is a countable (or finite) upper bound on the sequential order of a compact sequential space. We consider the properties of compact scattered spaces with infinite sequential order.


Uncountably Many Quasi-Isometry Classes Of Groups Of Type Fp, Ignat Soroko, Robert Kropholler, Ian Leary 2017 University of Oklahoma

Uncountably Many Quasi-Isometry Classes Of Groups Of Type Fp, Ignat Soroko, Robert Kropholler, Ian Leary

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

An interplay between algebra and topology goes in many ways. Given a space X, we can study its homology and homotopy groups. In the other direction, given a group G, we can form its Eilenberg-Maclane space K(G, 1). It is natural to wish that it is `small' in some sense. If K(G, 1) space has n-skeleton with finitely many cells, then G is said to have type Fn. Such groups act naturally on the cellular chain complex of the universal cover for K(G, 1), which has finitely generated free modules in all dimensions up to n ...


The Specification Property And Infinite Entropy For Certain Classes Of Linear Operators, James Kelly, Will Brian, Tim Tennant 2017 Christopher Newport University

The Specification Property And Infinite Entropy For Certain Classes Of Linear Operators, James Kelly, Will Brian, Tim Tennant

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

We study the specification property and infinite topological entropy for two specific types of linear operators: translation operators on weighted Lebesgue function spaces and weighted backward shift operators on sequence F-spaces.

It is known from the work of Bartoll, Martinínez-Giménez, Murillo-Arcila (2014), and Peris, that for weighted backward shift operators, the existence of a single non-trivial periodic point is sufficient for specification. We show this also holds for translation operators on weighted Lebesgue function spaces. This implies, in particular, that for these operators, the specification property is equivalent to Devaney chaos. We also show that these forms of chaos imply ...


On Roitman's Principle For Box Products, Hector Alonso Barriga-Acosta 2017 Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico

On Roitman's Principle For Box Products, Hector Alonso Barriga-Acosta

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

One of the oldest problems in box products is if the countable box product of the convergent sequence is normal. It is known that consistenly (e.g., b=d, d=c) the answer is affirmative. A recent progress is due to Judy Roitman that states a combinatorial principle which also implies the normality and holds in many models.

Although the countable box product of the convergent sequence is normal in some models of b < d < c, Roitman asked what happen with her principle in this models. We answer that Roitman's principle is true in some models of b < d < c.


Spaces With No S Or L Subspaces, Joan Hart, Kenneth Kunen 2017 University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh

Spaces With No S Or L Subspaces, Joan Hart, Kenneth Kunen

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

We show it consistent for spaces X and Y to be both HS and HL even though their product X ×Y contains an S-space. Recall that an S-space is a T3 space that is HS but not HL.

More generally, consider spaces that contain neither an S-space nor an L-space. We say a space is ESLC iff each of its subspaces is either both HS and HL or neither HS nor HL. The "C" in "ESLC" refers to HC; a space is HC iff each of its subspaces has the ccc (countable chain condition) (iff the space has no ...


Relationships Between Topological Properties Of X And Algebraic Properties Of Intermediate Rings A(X), Joshua Sack 2017 California State University, Long Beach

Relationships Between Topological Properties Of X And Algebraic Properties Of Intermediate Rings A(X), Joshua Sack

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

A topological property is a property invariant under homeomorphism, and an algebraic property of a ring is a property invariant under ring isomorphism. Let C(X) be the ring of real-valued continuous functions on a Tychonoff space X, let C*(X) ⊆ C(X) be the subring of those functions that are bounded, and call a ring A(X) an intermediate ring if C*(X) ⊆ A(X) ⊆ C(X). For a class Q of intermediate rings, an algebraic property P describes a topological property T among Q if for all A(X), B(Y) ∈ Q if A(X) and B(Y ...


Topology And Experimental Distinguishability, Gabriele Carcassi, Christine A. Aidala, David J. Baker, Mark J. Greenfield 2017 University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

Topology And Experimental Distinguishability, Gabriele Carcassi, Christine A. Aidala, David J. Baker, Mark J. Greenfield

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

In this talk we are going to formalize the relationship between topological spaces and the ability to distinguish objects experimentally, providing understanding and justification as to why topological spaces and continuous functions are pervasive tools in the physical sciences. The aim is to use these ideas as a stepping stone to give a more rigorous physical foundation to dynamical systems and, in particular, Hamiltonian dynamics.

We will first define an experimental observation as a statement that can be verified using an experimental procedure. We will show that observations are not closed under negation and countable conjunction, but are closed under ...


Entropy In Topological Groups, Part 2, Dikran Dikranjan 2017 University of Udine

Entropy In Topological Groups, Part 2, Dikran Dikranjan

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

Entropy was introduced first in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, as well as information theory. In the last sixty years entropy made its way also in topology, ergodic theory, as well as other branches of mathematics as algebra, geometry and number theory where dynamical systems appear in one way or another.

Roughly speaking, entropy is a non-negative real number or infinity assigned to a "selfmap" T of a "space" X, where the "space" X can be a topological or uniform space, a measure space, an abstract or topological group (or vector space) or just a set. The "selfmap" T can be ...
