+A topological space is called *spectral* if it is homeomorphic to the spectrum of some commutative

Following some ideas of M.

+When we include an uncertainty element $F<​U<​T$, along with negation $\neg +U: =U$, we generate the class of Kleene algebras.
+Of coursethere is a famous correspondence between Boolean algebras and

-of a group $G$ control the structure of $G$ itself? Recently, it has been observed that certain results along these lines can be obtained when one looks not at the set of all irreducible characters of $G$, but only the subset of those characters taking values in some appropriate field. In this talk, I'll characterize the structure of finite groups which have exactly three rational-valued irreducible characters (for solvable groups, this characterization is due to J. Tent). I will attempt to give some of the flavor of the proof -- which at one point includes a surprise cameo by the complex Lie algebra $sl(n)$.+

Generalizations of $V$ called $V_n$ act on n-letter alphabets. I will present more generalizations that add the action of finite permutation groups to the finite prefix exchanges. For a finite permutation group $G$ on $n$ points, the group $V_n(G)$ marries the finite prefix exchanges with iterated permutations from $G$. The primary theorem I will present states that $V_n$ is isomorphic to $V_n(G)$ if and only if $G$ is semiregular (i.e. $G$ acts freely). ​ The proof involves the use of automata and orbit dynamics.+

Mimicking a well-known construction for commutative rings, we can put a topology on the set of prime ideals of a commutative BCK-algebra;​ the resulting space is called the spectrum. I will discuss some results/​properties of the spectrum of such algebras. A particularly interesting spectrum occurs when the underlying algebra is a so-called BCK-union of a specific algebra. In this case, the spectrum is a spectral space, meaning it is homeomorphic to the spectrum of a commutative ring.+
