zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.
py: 2000-2015 cc: (94A | 11T) Number ranges are accepted. Terms can be grouped within (parentheses).

Proximity: a powerful tool in extension theory, function spaces, hyperspaces, boolean algebras and point-free geometry. (English) Zbl 1192.54010
Mynard, Frédéric (ed.) et al., Beyond topology. Providence, RI: American Mathematical Society (AMS) (ISBN 978-0-8218-4279-9/pbk). Contemporary Mathematics 486, 89-114 (2009).
The article serves as a brief survey of the theory of proximity spaces and their usage in topology. Description and discussion of proximity axioms is provided, then inducing topologies, relations to uniformities and Smirnov compactifications follow, locally compact hulls are presented in more or less details. Finally, some applications to function spaces (mainly convergence), homeomorphism groups and to hyperspaces are given (connections to lattices and point-free geometry are briefly discussed, too).
