Earman has criticized the branching ap- proach and suggested ``pruning some branches from branching space-time.'' This article identifies the different---order-theoretic versus topological---perspective of both discussions as a reason for certain misunderstandings and tries to remove them. Most important, we give a novel, topological criterion of modal consistency that usefully generalizes an earlier criterion, and we introduce a differential-geometrical version of branching space-times as a non-Hausdorff (generalized) manifold.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103605204-4002607-1"/> <dcterms:title>A generalized manifold topology for branching space-times</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2014-03-18T11:09:38Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Müller, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Philosophy of Science ; 80 (2013), 5. - S. 1089-1100</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/26802"/> <dcterms:issued>2013</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2014-03-18T11:09:38Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
