Convergence S-compactifications


  • Bernd Losert University of Central Florida

convergence space, convergence semigroup, continuous action, S-compactification.


Properties of continuous actions on convergence spaces are investigated. The primary focus is the characterization as to when a continuous action on a convergence space can be continuously extended to an action on a compactification of the convergence space. The largest and smallest such compactifications are studied.
