A short note on nearly perfect maps of locales

Ando Razafindrakoto


We characterise compact locales in terms of nearly perfect maps. We show in particular that these maps are the natural pointfree version of Bourbaki's proper maps - when defined via any ultrafillter - and that they extend Herrlich's notion of nearly closed sublocales [10].
