# Set-Theoretic Topology and Topological Algebra

International Conference Set-Theoretic Topology and Topological Algebra in honor of professor Alexander Arhangelskii on his 80-th birthday

Professor Alexander Vladimirovich Arhangelskii more than forty-five years works at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, of which over thirty years in the position of professor. A.V. Arhangelskii is a pupil of Academician P.S. Alexandroff, who, together with P.S. Uryson founded the Russian (Soviet) topological school. And to this day the Russian topological school is one of the best in the world. His scientific results became classical and laid the foundation for such scientific areas as topological algebra, spaces of continuous functions, topological homogeneity. He wrote more than 330 works, more than fifty times A.V. Arhangelskii was an invited speaker at international conferences and symposiums. Monographs of A.V. Arhangel’skii “Topological function spaces”, “Cantor set theory”, “Finite-dimensional vector spaces”, “Topological groups and related structures” (joint with M.G. Tkachenko) and joint with V.I. Ponomarev textbook “Fundamentals of General Topology in Problems and Exercises” became reference books for many mathematicians and translated into foreign languages. He established in Russia an authoritative scientific school: among the students of A.V. Arhangelskii 37 candidates and doctors of science, among them more than 20 professors.

**Topics include:**

- Set-Theoretic Topology
- Mappings and Spaces
- Topological groups
- Topological function spaces
