SPEAKER: Luiz Cordeiro (uOttawa)             ABSTRACT: The connections between topological and algebraic structures has been a topic of ongoing interest for at least 80 years, since Stone's work on representations of Boolean algebras ('36). In this talk I will present an overview of classical and recent results in the area. No prior knowledge of the subject will be assumed.
