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.

We investigate the relationship between absolute and relative semi-stability for vector bundles on projective varieties. The results are used to explicitly describe the moduli spaces of semi-stable vector bundles on Hirzebruch surfaces. The talk is aimed at a general audience.
