Dimension-raising maps in a large scale

Takahisa Miyata, Žiga Virk (2013)

Fundamenta Mathematicae


Hurewicz's dimension-raising theorem states that dim Y ≤ dim X + n for every n-to-1 map f: X → Y. In this paper we introduce a new notion of finite-to-one like map in a large scale setting. Using this notion we formulate a dimension-raising type theorem for asymptotic dimension and asymptotic Assouad-Nagata dimension. It is also well-known (Hurewicz's finite-to-one mapping theorem) that dim X ≤ n if and only if there exists an (n+1)-to-1 map from a 0-dimensional space onto X. We formulate...
