Normality vs. extremal disconnectedness: two sandwichtype results for the price of one



Description: 
Several results in the literature about normal and extremally disconnected spaces (like KatetovTong type theorems, Uryshon's type lemmas or Tietze's type lemmas) shape the idea that the two notions are somehow dual to each other and therefore can be studied in parallel. In this talk we will discuss the source of this 'duality' and show how each pair of parallel results can be framed by the same proof. The key idea appears to be, once more, "generalize, to understand better".
