show that Alexandorff compactification of complex plane is homeomorphic to s^2.thank you sir.(please reply as soon as possible)

### Re: topology

I think that the homeomorphism is the stereographic projection.
You only need to prove that stereographi projection is indeed a homeomorphism between the plane and the sphere without the pole. (It is clear, that the sphere is compact.) For locally compact spaces (if I'm not mistaken) the Alexandroff compactification is uniquely determined.
