### The set of all functions which vanish at infinity is a subset of the set of all functions which have vanishing variation

Let $X$ be a coarse space, we define the following: $D_b(X)$ is the set of all bounded functions $f:X\rightarrow \mathbb{C}$ $f\in$$D_b(X)$ is said to vanish at infinity if for each $\varepsilon$>0 ...

### Topology is to semi-decidability, coarse structures are to what?

There is a folklore correspondence between topology as semi-decidability amongst computer scientists, which is explained in places like: The monograph Synthetic Topology: of Data Types and Classical ...

### Why are coarse maps required to be proper?

In the context of coarse spaces, a map between coarse spaces $f:X\to Y$ is called coarse if it is bornologous (it maps controlled sets to controlled sets), and proper, in the sense that preimages of ...

### Coarsifying persistence modules

The context Let $I=[0,∞)$ and consider the category of persistence modules $(V,π)$ indexed over $I$ satisfying: For all $t$ in $I$ but a closed discrete set of points $T$, there exists a ...

### Comparing the group convolution algebra with the equivariant Roe algebra

Let $G$ be a Lie group equipped with a left-invariant metric. Then $C_c(G)$ is a $*$-algebra of convolution operators on $L^2(G)$. Let $\mathbb{C}[|G|]^G$ denote the $*$-subalgebra of bounded ...

### Does the square root of a finite propagation operator have finite propagation?

Let $X$ be a non-compact manifold and let $C_0(X)$ act on $L^2(X)$ by pointwise multiplication. We say $T\in\mathcal{B}(L^2(X))$ has finite propagation if there exists an $r>0$ such that: for all ...

### How to choose a continuous function which vanishes **only** on the closed set

We are reading John Roe's book Lectures on Coarse Geometry. We come across a question in P27 line 9: Suppose $X$ is a paracompact and locally compact Hausdorff space, $\bar{X}$ is a ...

### Reference request: Higson compactification

It seems that the idea of the Higson compactification first arose in the context of non-compact manifolds in a 1992 preprint of Higson called "The relative $K$-homology of Baum and Douglas". It seems ...

### The growth of a subset of a group

Let $S$ be a symmetric subset of a group $G$ containing the identity, and let $S^n$ be the set of all products of $n$ elements of $S$. If $S^3\subset gS$ for some translate $gS$ of $S$ then it ...

### Coarsely trivial Borel cross section for $G\to G/N$

Let $G$ be a locally compact group, and let $N$ be a closed, normal subgroup, and let $\pi\colon G\to G/N$ be the quotient homomorphism. It is known that there exists a Borel cross section, i.e., a ...

### F.g group with infinite ends not Q.I to a free group

Is there any easy example of a finitely generated group with a Cantor set of ends that is not quasi-isometric to a finitely generated free group? Thanks in advance.
A rather immediate reaction to seeing the definition of a coarse structure, at least to me, is to be reminded of a uniform structure. The axioms for a coarse structure $\mathcal{C}$ (defined by a ...
