What is formal topology

When topology is developed in a strictly constructive way,
for instance over Martin-Loef's type theory, points cannot be
given primitively and the pointfree approach is fundamental.
This is the reason why it is called formal. Formal topology
has now become an important tool in constructive mathematics.

Invited speakers include Andre' Joyal, Per Martin-Loef and
many other prominent scholars:


Before the workshop, two days of extensive and coordinated
