This talk shows how historians have interpreted the period facing their own contemporary issues. It discusses the changing frames which bring the nineteenth century close to us, or, indeed, have turned it into a foreign country. The lecture was given on 31 May 2016 at the German Historical Institute London. Introduction by Michael Scha

1 Topological spaces and homeomorphism

Two topological spaces (X, TX) and (Y, TY) are homeomorphic if there is a bijection f : XY that is continuous, and whose inverse f−1 is also continuous, with respect to the given topologies; such a function f is called a homeomorphism.

Going Beyond 'Dangerous' Climate Change [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Kevin Anderson | Despite high-level statements to the contrary, there is little to no chance of maintaining the global mean surface temperature increase at or below 2 degrees Celsius. Moreover, the impacts associated with 2°C have been revised upward sufficiently so that 2°C now more appropriately represents the threshold between 'dangerous' and 'extremely dangerous' climate change.
