Mathematics Colloquium

"Hyperspaces: Distance and Topology"

By Dr. Norah Esty 

Mathematics Department

Stonehill College

 Professor Norah Esty, Mathematics

           

 

 

 

Abstract: In this talk we will give an introduction to the concept of hyperspaces.  We will give some examples and discuss how such things might arise.  We will then look at how to calculate distance in hyperspaces, and from there, the ideas of open and closed sets.  We will finish by doing a basic compare-and-contrast of a few different topologies on hyperspaces.

Monday, October 19 at 4pm

Science Center , Room 246, Wheaton College

This talk is free and open to everyone,
