Overview

This volume mainly focuses on various comprehensive topological theori es, with the exception of a paper on combinatorial topology versus poi nt-set topology by I.M. James and a paper on the history of the normal Moore space problem by P. Nyikos. The history of the following theor ies is given: pointfree topology, locale and frame theory (P. Johnston e), non-symmetric distances in topology (H.-P. K nzi), categorical top ology and topological constructs (E. Lowen-Colebunders and B. Lowen), topological groups (M. G. Tkacenko) and finally shape theory (S. Marde |ic and J. Segal).
