Abstract
 
Using an internal characterisation of radiality or
> Fréchet-Urysohness, we can translate this property into other structural
> forms for many problems and classes of spaces. In this talk, I will
> recap this internal characterisation and translate the properties of
> being radial / Fréchet-Urysohn (Stone-Čech, Hewitt) into the prime ideal
> structure on C*(X) / C(X) for Tychonoff spaces, with a view to reaching
> out to other parts of algebra, e.g. C*-algebras, algebraic geometry, etc.
