Let a set C be given. Two subsets S,T ⊆ C are said to be orthogonal, written S ⊥ T, if S ∩ T is ∅ or a singleton. For a family of C-sets (i.e., F ⊆ ℘(C)), the dual of F, written F ⊥, is defined as the set of all C-sets S such that for every T ∈ F, S ⊥ T. A coherent space F over C is a family C-sets for which F = (F ⊥) ⊥.
In Proofs and Types coherent spaces are called coherence spaces. A footnote explains that although in the French original they were espaces cohérents, the coherence space translation was used because spectral spaces are sometimes called coherent spaces.
