“Ten years of Axiomatic Cohesion”.

Tutti gli interessati sono invitati a partecipare.

Ten years of Axiomatic Cohesion. Lawvere observes in the Author Commentary of [L5] that ``The simple idea
at the core of this paper has not yet been much pursued by workers in topos theory".
This simple idea to axiomatise the ``distinctive internal connectedness of a topos
that models all spaces of a `general' combinatorial, algebraic, or smooth kind"
is revisited in [L7]. This 2007 paper has incited other workers to pursue the idea.
The purpose of the talk is to recall the axioms in [L5],
explain the new ideas introduced in [L7] and discuss some of the work that it incited.
In particular, that by Johnstone, by Marmolejo, by the speaker and by Lawvere himself.
