Questions tagged [quotient-space]

Quotient space is, intuitively speaking, the result of identifying or "gluing together" certain points of a given topological space. The points to be identified are specified by an equivalence relation. This is commonly done in order to construct new spaces from given ones. The quotient topology consists of all sets with an open preimage under the canonical projection map that maps each element to its equivalence class.

When does base-change in topological spaces preserve quotient maps?

The question when $(-) \times X$ preserves colimits in topological spaces is well-studied. Since it always preserves arbitrary coproducts (disjoint unions), one only has to show when it preserves ...

Can a compact good orbifold be realized as a global quotient of a compact manifold?

Let $\mathcal{O}$ be a compact good orbifold, where we understand a good orbifold to be an orbifold obtained as a global quotient $M/G$, where $M$ is a manifold and $G$ is a discrete group. Are there ...
