DESCRIPTION:Quantales are very simple ordered alge
bras which can be thought of as pointfree noncommu
tative topologies. In recent years, their connecti
ons have been studied with fundamental notions in
noncommutative geometry such as groupoids and C*-a
lgebras. In particular, the class of quantales cor
responding to certain very well behaved groupoids
(the etale groupoids) has been identified by means
of a non-functorial duality. However, there are v
ery interesting examples of groupoids that do not
belong to this class. For instance, groupoids that
arise from group actions on topological spaces. I
n a joint work with Riccardo Re, the non-functoria
l duality has been extended to these latter groupo
ids as well. In the talk, I will introduce this li
ne of research, sketch the main ideas of the duali
ty, and discuss some examples. http://www.science
