A Glimpse of Coarse Structures: From Metric Spaces to Noncommutative Spaces


Coarse geometry studies geometric objects from a large scale point of view. Indeed, in the setting of coarse geometry two spaces are identified if they look the same from afar. For instance, if one looks at a big ball from a far enough distance, the ball looks like a point, or as another example the space of integers looks like the real line from afar. In this talk, we will first discuss about coarse maps on metric spaces and then we will talk about course structures in general. In particular, the topological coarse structure associated to a paracompact locally compact Hausdorff space with a given compactification will be introduced and as ...
