Non-commutative Boolean algebras
In this talk, I shall explain how the classical theory of Stone duality may be generalized to a non-commutative setting. This theory has connections with étale groupoids, quantales, groups and inverse semigroups.
Some of the work was joint with Alina Vdovina. I shall assume no prior exposure to this theory.
