abstract = {AbstractWe study retractions from the hyperspace of all nonempty closed subsets of a given continuum onto the continuum (which is naturally embedded in the hyperspace). Some necessary and some sufficient conditions for the existence of such a retraction are found if the continuum is a curve. It is shown that the existence of such a retraction for a curve implies that the curve is a uniformly arcwise connected dendroid, and that a universal smooth dendroid admits such a retraction. The existence of this retraction for a given dendroid implies that the dendroid admits a mean. An example of a (nonplanable) smooth dendroid that admits no mean is constructed. Some related results are obtained and open problems are stated. The results answer several questions asked in the literature.CONTENTS1. Introduction...................................52.
