Event Type:

Topology Seminar

Date/Time:

Location:

Gilkey 100

Guest Speaker:

Aniruth Phon-on and Dennis Garity

Abstract:

Aniruth Phon-on will finish his description of Cantor Sets in the Hilbert Cube with special defining sequences. Dennis Garity will then discuss topological rigidity and topological homogeneity. A space is rigid if the only self homeomorphism is the identity. A space is homogeneous if every pair of points can be interchanged by a homeomorphism.
