A tag has been placed on Disjunction property of Wallman, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

{{{1}}}

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. LukeTheSpook (talk) 01:42, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Short dictionary definition articles[edit]

Howdy, some of your recent articles are quite short, and have little more than a definition. It is fine to have "works in progress", so to speak, but to allow other editors to help, it is important to make sure a few key points are in the first draft:

  • Context -- make sure to add {{math-stub}} to give some clue, but better yet, indicate what area of math is interested in these concepts (or CS for some of your articles).
  • Notability -- why is this subject notable? What makes it worth including?
  • References -- include at least one reference (I believe your recent math articles include one or two which is just fine)

Can you indicate the context or notability for the two topological semigroup articles? Is this PDE and one-parameter semigroups of operators, or is this some area of topology where people study what sort of topological spaces can support a semigroup structure, or is it something completely different? Are these concepts used in any major research programs or famous results? Have famous people written about these concepts?

I'll watch this page, but feel free to just add the info to the articles. They are fairly reasonable, but it is hard for the math editors to decide if they are interesting or not just from the definition. JackSchmidt (talk) 02:32, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Stone functor[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Stone functor, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Stone functor. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.
