SPEAKER: Dr. Jeffrey Hankins
TITLE: "A Uniform Box Product Primer"
ABSTRACT: In Jocelyn Bell's thesis, she constructed a space which she proved was normal, countably paracompact, and collectionwise Hausdorff. However, she left open a few questions about the uniform box product. The speaker will address and definitively answer a subset of these questions, such as whether her space is collectionwise normal or paracompact, and introduce a collection of such spaces of interest to set-theoretic topologists.
