An algebraic approach to Harder-Narasimhan filtrations

Given a stability condition defined over a category, every object in this category
is filtered by some distinguished objects called semistables. This
filtration, that is unique up-to-isomorphism, is know as the
 Harder-Narasimhan filtration.
One less studied property of stability conditions, when defined over an
 abelian category, is the fact that each of them induce a chain of torsion
classes that is naturally indexed.
 In this talk we will study arbitrary indexed chain of torsion classes. Our
first result states that every indexed chain of torsion classes induce a
 Harder-Narasimhan filtration. Following ideas from Bridgeland we
 show that the set of all indexed chains of torsion classes satisfying a mild 
 technical condition forms a topological space. If time we
 will characterise the neighbourhood or some distinguished points.
