abstract = {Let X and Y be compacta and let f:X → Y be a k-dimensional map. In [5] Pasynkov stated that if Y is finite-dimensional then there exists a map $g : X → \mathbb \{I\}^k$ such that dim (f × g) = 0. The problem that we deal with in this note is whether or not the restriction on the dimension of Y in the Pasynkov theorem can be omitted. This problem is still open.
Without assuming that Y is finite-dimensional Sternfeld [6] proved that there exists a map $g : X → \mathbb \{I\}^k$ such that dim (f × g) = 1. We improve this result of Sternfeld showing that there exists a map $g : X → mathbb\{I\}^\{k+1\}$ such that dim (f × g) =0. The last result is generalized to maps f with weakly infinite-dimensional fibers.
Our proofs are based on so-called Bing maps. A compactum is said to be a Bing compactum if its compact connected subsets are all hereditarily indecomposable, and a map is said to be a Bing map if all its fibers are Bing compacta. Bing maps on finite-dimensional compacta were constructed by Brown [2]. We construct Bing maps for arbitrary compacta. Namely, we prove that for a compactum X the set of all Bing maps from X to $\mathbb \{I\}$ is a dense $G_δ$-subset of $C(X, \mathbb \{I\})$.},

AB - Let X and Y be compacta and let f:X → Y be a k-dimensional map. In [5] Pasynkov stated that if Y is finite-dimensional then there exists a map $g : X → \mathbb {I}^k$ such that dim (f × g) = 0. The problem that we deal with in this note is whether or not the restriction on the dimension of Y in the Pasynkov theorem can be omitted. This problem is still open.
Without assuming that Y is finite-dimensional Sternfeld [6] proved that there exists a map $g : X → \mathbb {I}^k$ such that dim (f × g) = 1. We improve this result of Sternfeld showing that there exists a map $g : X → mathbb{I}^{k+1}$ such that dim (f × g) =0. The last result is generalized to maps f with weakly infinite-dimensional fibers.
Our proofs are based on so-called Bing maps. A compactum is said to be a Bing compactum if its compact connected subsets are all hereditarily indecomposable, and a map is said to be a Bing map if all its fibers are Bing compacta. Bing maps on finite-dimensional compacta were constructed by Brown [2]. We construct Bing maps for arbitrary compacta. Namely, we prove that for a compactum X the set of all Bing maps from X to $\mathbb {I}$ is a dense $G_δ$-subset of $C(X, \mathbb {I})$.
