Compactifications of Topological Spaces

Abstract. Given a locally compact, Hausdorff space, there are several ways to compactify it. We examine two of these compactifications -- the one-point compactification and the Stone-Cech compactification -- and give conditions which guarantee that they are different. We also give new examples of topological spaces for which the two are the same.
