Abstract

The main result is to give a separable, Cech-complete, 0-dimensional Moore space that is not Scott-domain representable. This result answered questions in the literature; it is known that each complete mertrisable space is Scott-domain representable. The talk will give a history of the techniques involved.

Abstract
Berz used the Hahn-Banach Theorem over Q to prove that the graph of a measurable subadditive function that is non-negatively Q-homogeneous consists of two lines through the origin. I will give a proof using the density topology and Steinhaus’ Sum-set Theorem. This dualizes to a much simpler category version: a `Baire-Berz Theorem’. I will give the broader picture of this using F. Burton Jones’ analysis of additivity versus linearity. Shift-compactness and special subsets of R will be an inevitable ingredient. The talk draws on recent work with Nick Bingham and separately with Harry I. Miller.
