Abstract: Stone's duality between Boolean algebras and Boolean spaces is extended to a dual equivalence between the category of all $ \alpha $-dimensional cylindric algebras and a certain category of sheaves of such algebras. The dual spaces of important types of algebras are characterized and applications are given to the study of direct and subdirect decompositions of cylindric algebras.
