Abstract

Let X be a space and let H(X) denote its hyperspace (= all nonempty closed subsets of X topologized via the Vietoris topology). Then X is Boolean (= totally disconnected compact Hausdorff) iff is Boolean; and if B denotes the characteristic algebra of clopen sets in X then the corresponding algebra for H(X) is the free algebra generated by B modulo the ideal which "remembers" the upper semilattice structure of B.
