A construction of noncontractible simply connected cell-like two-dimensional Peano continua

Katsuya Eda, Umed H. Karimov, Dušan Repovš (2007)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Using the topologist sine curve we present a new functorial construction of cone-like spaces, starting in the category of all path-connected topological spaces with a base point and continuous maps, and ending in the subcategory of all simply connected spaces. If one starts from a noncontractible n-dimensional Peano continuum for any n > 0, then our construction yields a simply connected noncontractible (n + 1)-dimensional cell-like Peano continuum. In particular, starting from the circle 𝕊¹,...

Local cohomological properties of homogeneous ANR compacta

V. Valov (2016)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

In accordance with the Bing-Borsuk conjecture, we show that if X is an n-dimensional homogeneous metric ANR continuum and x ∈ X, then there is a local basis at x consisting of connected open sets U such that the cohomological properties of Ū and bd U are similar to the properties of the closed ball ⁿ ⊂ ℝⁿ and its boundary n - 1 . We also prove that a metric ANR compactum X of dimension n is dimensionally full-valued if and only if the group Hₙ(X,X∖x;ℤ) is not trivial for some x ∈ X. This implies that...

On the disjoint (0,N)-cells property for homogeneous ANR's

Paweł Krupski (1993)

Colloquium Mathematicae

A metric space (X,ϱ) satisfies the disjoint (0,n)-cells property provided for each point x ∈ X, any map f of the n-cell B n into X and for each ε > 0 there exist a point y ∈ X and a map g : B n X such that ϱ(x,y) < ε, ϱ ^ ( f , g ) < ε and y g ( B n ) . It is proved that each homogeneous locally compact ANR of dimension >2 has the disjoint (0,2)-cells property. If dimX = n > 0, X has the disjoint (0,n-1)-cells property and X is a locally compact L C n - 1 -space then local homologies satisfy H k ( X , X - x ) = 0 for k < n and Hn(X,X-x) ≠ 0.
