Title:
The Stone-Čech Compactiﬁcation
Abstract: By a compactification of a topological space $X$ we meant a compact Hausdorff space $K$, together with an embedding $e$ from $X$ to $K$ such that image of $X$ is dense in $K$. In this talk we shall discuss about a particular type of compactification namely Stone- Cech compactification and prove that for a Tychonoff space Stone - Cech compactification exists. We shall also give explicit construction of this compactification for given $X$ and discuss some properties which inherits from $X$ to it's compactification.
