More Flipping Strange Goings On
In the past few MGF seminars, we've seen examples of dualities between
concrete categories which are representable, and where both functors are
represented by "the same object in different categories".
In this talk, I hope to discuss some general nonsense which sheds a bit of
light on the situation, and to present a small selection of examples which
don't come from the Stone Duality part of the world; perhaps Pontyragin
duality, Gelfand Duality, or the recovery of smooth manifolds from their
rings of smooth real-valued functions.
