Title: Seeking a Network Characterization of Corson Compacta

Abstract: We will identify a characterization of Corson Compacta using base and point network. This provides an answer to a question raised by A. Dow, H. Junnila, and J. Pelant, also by F. Garcia, L. Oncina, and J. Orihuela in their articles.

Title: Inverse Limits of Flexagons

Abstract: Flexagons were first introduced in 1939 by Arthur H. Stone when he was a graduate student at Princeton, and they were popularized by Martin Gardner in the December 1956 issue of *Scientific American* in an article entitled "Flexagons" which launched his well known "Mathematical Games" column, which appeared in that magazine for many years. By folding strips of paper into various geometrical shapes, Stone created a variety of different flexagons, of which the most elegant are the "hexaflexagons" created by folding strips of equilateral triangles into a hexagonal shape and attaching the ends.

Mathematical studies of flexagons have concentrated on the combinatorial properties of flexagons created with a finite number of polygons. Here, we consider an infinite version which can be created either using inverse limits or nested intersections of solid tori (viewed as a folded annulus cross the unit interval). If $n \ge 3$, then a strip of $3n$ equilateral triangles can be folded into a hexaflexagon which (after the ends are identified) is topologically an annulus if $n$ is even and a Möbius strip if $n$ is odd. Of these, the most natural ones are created using $9(2^n)$ triangles, leading to the construction of a space (via either inverse limits or nested intersections) which (viewed as a subset of $\mathbb{R}^3$ in a natural way) mimics the properties of all of the hexaflexagons having finitely many triangles. Some preliminary results on the properties of this space will be discussed.

(Paper toys will be provided to the audience as visual aids.)

Speaker: **Gary Gruenhage**

Topic: A few years ago a researcher in theoretical computer science asked me a question involving the sequential property in (non-Hausdorff) topological spaces. I will present the example I constructed to answer his question.

Title: The D-property of t-metrizable spaces and their finite unions.

Abstract: The main results are the following:

1. A t-metrizable space is a D-space.

2. If a space of countable tightness can be written as the union of finite t-metrizable subspaces, then it is a D-space.

Title: Spaces with -dominated diagonal

Abstract: A space is dominated by if there is a -directed compact cover, where is the set of compact subsets of the space . We will show that, under , a compact space with a -dominated diagonal is metrizable (where is the space of rational numbers).

Title: Spaces with \(\mathbb{Q}\)-dominated diagonal

Abstract: A space is dominated by \(M\) if there is a \(\mathcal{K}(M)\)-directed compact cover, where \(\mathcal{K}(M)\) is the set of compact subsets of the space \(M\). We will show that, under \(\mathfrak{b}>\omega_1\), a compact space with a \(\mathbb{Q}\)-dominated diagonal is metrizable (where \(\mathbb{Q}\) is the space of rational numbers).
