AANR spaces and absolute retracts for tree-like continua

Janusz Jerzy Charatonik, Janusz R. Prajs (2005)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

Similarity:

Continua that are approximative absolute neighborhood retracts (AANR’s) are characterized as absolute terminal retracts, i.e., retracts of continua in which they are embedded as terminal subcontinua. This implies that any AANR continuum has a dense arc component, and that any ANR continuum is an absolute terminal retract. It is proved that each absolute retract for any of the classes of: tree-like continua, λ -dendroids, dendroids, arc-like continua and arc-like λ -dendroids is an approximative...

The solenoids are the only circle-like continua that admit expansive homeomorphisms

Similarity:

A homeomorphism h:X → X of a compactum X is expansive provided that for some fixed c > 0 and any distinct x, y ∈ X there exists an integer n, dependent only on x and y, such that d(hⁿ(x),hⁿ(y)) > c. It is shown that if X is a circle-like continuum that admits an expansive homeomorphism, then X is homeomorphic to a solenoid.
