Poset Topology

All Updates

In mathematics, the **poset topology** associated with a partially ordered set *S* (or poset for short) is the Alexandrov topology (open sets are upper sets) on the poset of finite chains of S, ordered by inclusion.

Let V be a set of vertices. An abstract simplicial complex Δ is a set of finite sets of vertices, known as faces <math>sigma subseteq V</math>, such that**closed** if and only if Γ is a simplicial complex:

The**order complex** associated with a poset, S, has the underlying set of S as vertices, and the finite chains (i.e. finite totally-ordered subsets) of S as faces. The poset topology associated with a poset S is the Alexandrov topology on the order complex associated with S.
