If you have a question about this talk, please contact Tony Samuel. In 1997 Flagg introduced the concept of a value quantale, a certain ordered structure distilling key properties of the structure of [0,\infty]. Allowing a metric space to take values in a value quantale rather than insisting on the distances landing in [0,\infty] bears a remarkable consequence: All topological spaces are metrisable. As a result, Flagg’s formalism offers a unification of topology and metric geometry. I will sketch the proof of the result and present recent results emanating from the unified perspective. In particular, a Lipschitz ‘machine’ will be presented; a functor from diagrams of value quantales that produces a category of spaces and mappings with a suitable notion of Lipschitz constant. The classical notion is recovered by running the machine on a certain simple diagram.
