Flows and compactifications
In this paper we study functorial connections between flows and semigroup compactifications of the phase group or semigroup. This machinery provides an approach to the theory of flows from a compact semigroup perspective. It is shown that many standard types of flows can be characterized in a straightforward and useful way by natural restrictions on the minimal ideal of the Ellis or enveloping semigroup of the flow. © Oxford University Press.
