Duality for homomorphisms

Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics book series (UTM)


To establish a dual correspondence between structure-preserving mappings of Boolean algebras and Boolean spaces, it is best not to give preferential treatment either. A good way to stay neutral is to use the concept of pairing introduced in §18. Suppose, accordingly, that A is a Boolean algebra and X is a Boolean space, and suppose that 〈p, x〉 represents all continuous 2-valued functions on X and all 2-valued homomorphisms on A. Suppose, moreover, that B and Y are a similarly paired pair. The purpose of this section is to make a connection between continuous mappings (from X into Y) and homomorphisms (from B into A).
