This paper studies algebraic frames L and the set Min(L) of minimal prime elements of L. We will endow the set Min(L) with two well-known topologies, known as the Hull-kernel (or Zariski) topology and the inverse topology, and discuss several properties of these two spaces. It will be shown that Min(L) endowed with the Hull-kernel topology is a zero-dimensional, Hausdorff space; whereas, Min(L) endowed with the inverse topology is a T 1, compact space. The main goal will be to find conditions on L for the spaces Min(L) and Min(L) -1 to have various topological properties; for example, compact, locally compact, Hausdorff, zero-dimensional, and extremally disconnected. We will also discuss when the two topological spaces are Boolean and Stone spaces.
