    Title: Representability for Relation Algebras

    Abstract: In this season we've looked at classical representation results,
    and how they can be explained as Galois correspondences between
    abstract categories of orders and concrete categories of spaces.
    In my talk I will discuss the representation problem for relation algebras.
    These are orders with extra structure but they are not all ``representable''.
    In contrast, relation algebras with quasi-projections are always representable.
    This result has no clear categorical interpretation,
    but I will try to clarify the structure of its construction.
