Unusual properties - mathematical and physical - of the a-boundary construction

Irmer, Ingrid


This thesis is written within the framework of the abstract boundary (or a-boundary) of Scott and Szekeres. The a-boundary provides a concept of "boundary" for any n-dimensional, paracompact, connected, Hausdorff manifold, defined in such a way that the boundary is independant of the particular embedding used to display the manifold. This makes it possible to define various types of boundary points of space-time such as "singularities" and "points at infinity". The original research that will...[Show more]
