The orientability of matchbox manifolds.
• Mathematics
• 1 September 1991
A separable and metrizable space X is a matchbox manifold if each point x of X has an open neighborhood which is homeomorphic to 4 x 1 for some zero-dimensional space Sx . Each arc component of aExpand

The fixed-point property for deformations of tree-like continua
Let f be a map of a tree-like continuum M that sends each arc-component of M into itself. We prove that f has a fixed point. Hence every tree-like continuum has the fixed-point property forExpand

INDECOMPOSABLE HOMOGENEOUS PLANE CONTINUA ARE HEREDITARILY INDECOMPOSABLE
F. Burton Jones [7] proved that every decomposable homogeneous plane continuum is either a simple closed curve or a circle of homogeneous nonseparating plane continua. Recently the author [5] showedExpand

Characterizations of λ connected plane continua
A continuum M is said to be λ connected if any two of its points can be joined by a hereditarily decomposable continuum in M. Here we characterize λ connected plane continua in terms of Jones'Expand

A fixed point theorem for hyperspaces of connected continua
Suppose that the hyperspace of compact connected subsets C(X) of a X connected continuum X can be 6-mapped (for each t > 0) into the plane. We prove that X is either arc-like or circle-like. ItExpand

COMMON FIXED POINTS FOR TWO COMMUTING SURFACE HOMEOMORPHISMS
• 2003
Let f and g be orientation-preserving surface homeomorphisms that commute under composition. Conditions are found ensuring that the fixed point set of f contains a fixed or periodic point for g.Expand
