Adjunction of n-equivalences and triad connectivity.

Peter J. Witbooi (1995)

Publicacions Matemàtiques

We prove a new adjunction theorem for n-equivalences. This theorem enables us to produce a simple geometric version of proof of the triad connectivity theorem of Blakers and Massey. An important intermediate step is a study of the collapsing map S∨X → S, S being a sphere.

Continuity of projections of natural bundles

Włodzimierz M. Mikulski (1992)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

This paper is a contribution to the axiomatic approach to geometric objects. A collection of a manifold M, a topological space N, a group homomorphism E: Diff(M) → Homeo(N) and a function π: N → M is called a quasi-natural bundle if (1) π ∘ E(f) = f ∘ π for every f ∈ Diff(M) and (2) if f,g ∈ Diff(M) are two diffeomorphisms such that f|U = g|U for some open subset U of M, then E(f)|π^{-1}(U) = E(g)|π^{-1}(U). We give conditions which ensure that π: N → M is continuous. In particular, if (M,N,E,π)...

Finite spaces and the universal bundle of a group

Peter Witbooi (1997)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

We find sufficient conditions for a cotriad of which the objects are locally trivial fibrations, in order that the push-out be a locally trivial fibration. As an application, the universal G -bundle of a finite group G , and the classifying space is modeled by locally finite spaces. In particular, if G is finite, then the universal G -bundle is the limit of an ascending chain of finite spaces. The bundle projection is a covering projection.

Generalized universal covering spaces and the shape group

Hanspeter Fischer, Andreas Zastrow (2007)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

If a paracompact Hausdorff space X admits a (classical) universal covering space, then the natural homomorphism φ: π₁(X) → π̌₁(X) from the fundamental group to its first shape homotopy group is an isomorphism. We present a partial converse to this result: a path-connected topological space X admits a generalized universal covering space if φ: π₁(X) → π̌₁(X) is injective. This generalized notion of universal covering p: X̃ → X enjoys most of the usual properties, with the possible exception of evenly...

Hopfian and strongly hopfian manifolds

Young Im, Yongkuk Kim (1999)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Let p: M → B be a proper surjective map defined on an (n+2)-manifold such that each point-preimage is a copy of a hopfian n-manifold. Then we show that p is an approximate fibration over some dense open subset O of the mod 2 continuity set C’ and C’ ∖ O is locally finite. As an application, we show that a hopfian n-manifold N is a codimension-2 fibrator if χ(N) ≠ 0 or H 1 ( N ) 2
