What are hyperfuncoids isomorphic to? ★★

Author(s): Porton

Let $\mathfrak{A}$ be an indexed family of sets.

\emph{Products} are $\prod A$ for $A \in \prod \mathfrak{A}$.

\emph{Hyperfuncoids} are filters $\mathfrak{F} \Gamma$ on the lattice $\Gamma$ of all finite unions of products.

\begin{problem} Is $\bigcap^{\mathsf{\tmop{FCD}}}$ a bijection from hyperfuncoids $\mathfrak{F} \Gamma$ to: \begin{enumerate} \item prestaroids on $\mathfrak{A}$; \item staroids on $\mathfrak{A}$; \item completary staroids on $\mathfrak{A}$? \end{enumerate} If yes, is $\operatorname{up}^{\Gamma}$ defining the inverse bijection? If not, characterize the image of the function $\bigcap^{\mathsf{\tmop{FCD}}}$ defined on $\mathfrak{F} \Gamma$.

Consider also the variant of this problem with the set $\Gamma$ replaced with the set $\Gamma^{\ast}$ of complements of elements of the set $\Gamma$. \end{problem}

Keywords: hyperfuncoids; multidimensional

Another conjecture about reloids and funcoids ★★

Author(s): Porton

\begin{definition} $\square f = \bigcap^{\mathsf{RLD}} \mathrm{up}^{\Gamma (\operatorname{Src} f ; \operatorname{Dst} f)} f$ for reloid $f$. \end{definition}

\begin{conjecture} $(\mathsf{RLD})_{\Gamma} f = \square (\mathsf{RLD})_{\mathrm{in}} f$ for every funcoid $f$. \end{conjecture}

Note: it is known that $(\mathsf{RLD})_{\Gamma} f \ne \square (\mathsf{RLD})_{\mathrm{out}} f$ (see below mentioned online article).

3-Colourability of Arrangements of Great Circles ★★

Author(s): Felsner; Hurtado; Noy; Streinu

Consider a set $S$ of great circles on a sphere with no three circles meeting at a point. The arrangement graph of $S$ has a vertex for each intersection point, and an edge for each arc directly connecting two intersection points. So this arrangement graph is 4-regular and planar.
