Galois Connections

  • Gabriele Castellini
Part of the Mathematics: Theory & Applications book series (MTA)


The notion of Galois connection will be used extensively in this book. Therefore, besides the definition, we report in this chapter some basic results that will be used in later proofs. The reader who wishes to acquire further knowledge in this topic could check [EKMS], for instance, where additional properties and many examples of Galois connections can be found.
