1/2-Homogeneous hyperspace suspensions

Sergio Macías, Patricia Pellicer-Covarrubias (2012)

Colloquium Mathematicae

We continue the study of 1/2-homogeneity of the hyperspace suspension of continua. We prove that if X is a decomposable continuum and its hyperspace suspension is 1/2-homogeneous, then X must be continuum chainable. We also characterize 1/2-homogeneity of the hyperspace suspension for several classes of continua, including: continua containing a free arc, atriodic and decomposable continua, and decomposable irreducible continua about a finite set.

A characterization of dendroids by the n-connectedness of the Whitney levels

Alejandro Illanes (1992)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Let X be a continuum. Let C(X) denote the hyperspace of all subcontinua of X. In this paper we prove that the following assertions are equivalent: (a) X is a dendroid, (b) each positive Whitney level in C(X) is 2-connected, and (c) each positive Whitney level in C(X) is ∞-connected (n-connected for each n ≥ 0).

A continuum X such that C ( X ) is not continuously homogeneous

Alejandro Illanes (2016)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

A metric continuum X is said to be continuously homogeneous provided that for every two points p , q X there exists a continuous surjective function f : X X such that f ( p ) = q . Answering a question by W.J. Charatonik and Z. Garncarek, in this paper we show a continuum X such that the hyperspace of subcontinua of X , C ( X ) , is not continuously homogeneous.

A generalization of boundedly compact metric spaces

Gerald Beer, Anna Di Concilio (1991)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

A metric space X , d is called a UC space provided each continuous function on X into a metric target space is uniformly continuous. We introduce a class of metric spaces that play, relative to the boundedly compact metric spaces, the same role that UC spaces play relative to the compact metric spaces.

A hit-and-miss topology for 2 X , Cₙ(X) and Fₙ(X)

Benjamín Espinoza, Verónica Martínez-de-la-Vega, Jorge M. Martínez-Montejano (2009)

Colloquium Mathematicae

A hit-and-miss topology ( τ H M ) is defined for the hyperspaces 2 X , Cₙ(X) and Fₙ(X) of a continuum X. We study the relationship between τ H M and the Vietoris topology and we find conditions on X for which these topologies are equivalent.

A Ramsey theorem for polyadic spaces

Murray Bell (1996)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

A polyadic space is a Hausdorff continuous image of some power of the one-point compactification of a discrete space. We prove a Ramsey-like property for polyadic spaces which for Boolean spaces can be stated as follows: every uncountable clopen collection contains an uncountable subcollection which is either linked or disjoint. One corollary is that ( α κ ) ω is not a universal preimage for uniform Eberlein compact spaces of weight at most κ, thus answering a question of Y. Benyamini, M. Rudin and M. Wage....

Absolute n-fold hyperspace suspensions

Sergio Macías, Sam B. Nadler, Jr. (2006)

Colloquium Mathematicae

The notion of an absolute n-fold hyperspace suspension is introduced. It is proved that these hyperspaces are unicoherent Peano continua and are dimensionally homogeneous. It is shown that the 2-sphere is the only finite-dimensional absolute 1-fold hyperspace suspension. Furthermore, it is shown that there are only two possible finite-dimensional absolute n-fold hyperspace suspensions for each n ≥ 3 and none when n = 2. Finally, it is shown that infinite-dimensional absolute n-fold hyperspace suspensions...

Affine group acting on hyperspaces of compact convex subsets of ℝⁿ

Sergey A. Antonyan, Natalia Jonard-Pérez (2013)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

For every n ≥ 2, let cc(ℝⁿ) denote the hyperspace of all nonempty compact convex subsets of the Euclidean space ℝⁿ endowed with the Hausdorff metric topology. Let cb(ℝⁿ) be the subset of cc(ℝⁿ) consisting of all compact convex bodies. In this paper we discover several fundamental properties of the natural action of the affine group Aff(n) on cb(ℝⁿ). We prove that the space E(n) of all n-dimensional ellipsoids is an Aff(n)-equivariant retract of cb(ℝⁿ). This is applied to show that cb(ℝⁿ) is homeomorphic...
