## Causal set kinematics: Partially ordered measure spaces as the context for the relationship with Lor

##### Abstract:

In this talk I will describe an approach to questions about the relationship between causal sets and smooth Lorentzian geometries based on considering both types of structures as examples of partially ordered measure spaces. There is a natural definition of closeness between any two objects of this type. I will introduce this definition, describe some of its properties, and comment on its application to manifoldlike causal sets.
