An extension theorem for sober spaces and the Goldman topology. (English) Zbl 1042.54003

Goldman points of a topological space are defined in order to extend the notion of prime \(G\)-ideals of a ring. We associate to any topological space a new topology called Goldman topology. For sober spaces, we prove an extension theorem of continuous maps. As an application, we give a topological characterization of the Jacobson subspace of the spectrum of a commutative ring. Many examples are provided to illustrate the theory.
