Local structure and topology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


There are many procedures for defining a topology on a space M. We select two for attention. In the first case, one may have a preferred family of functions defined on M. It may then be reasonable to consider the coarsest (weakest) topology on M which makes each of these functions continuous. In the second case, one may wish the space M to have strong homogeneity properties. Then M should be "glued together" from isomorphic copies of the same object.
