Ultrafilters on Balleans

  • I. V. Protasov
  • S. V. Slobodianiuk

A ballean (or, equivalently, a coarse structure) is an asymptotic counterpart of a uniform space. We introduce three ultrafilter satellites of a ballean (namely, corona, companion, and corona companion), estimate the basic cardinal invariants of the corona, and characterize the subsets of balleans in terms of companions.
