6 February 2014, Algebra|Coalgebra Seminar, Benno van den Berg

Speaker: Benno van den Berg
Title: Open maps, small maps and final coalgebras
Date: Thursday 6 February 2014
Time: 16:00-17:30
Location: Room F1.15, ILLC, Science Park, Amsterdam

Abstract: In his book on non-well-founded sets Aczel proves a general final coalgebra theorem, showing that a wide class of endofunctors on the category of classes has a final coalgebra. I will discuss generalisations of this result to the setting of algebraic set theory and try to motivate why it is interesting to look at results at this level of generality.
