We prove that a 1-dimensional continuum carrying a flow without singular points is homeomorphic to the unit circle if its first Čech cohomology group with integer coefficients is isomorphic to ℤ. As an application of this we obtain that an asymptotically stable invariant 1-dimensional continuum of a flow on a locally compact ANR, which does not contain singular points, must be a periodic orbit. 

Asymtotically stable one-dimensional compact minimal sets

It is proved that an asymptotically stable, $1$-dimensional, compact minimal set $A$ of a continuous flow on a locally compact, metric space $X$ is a periodic orbit, if $X$ is locally connected

Shape and Conley Index of Attractors and Isolated Invariant Sets

This article is an exposition of several results concerning the theory of continuous dynamical systems, in which Topology plays a key role. We study homological and homotopical properties of

Remarks on the region of attraction of an isolated invariant set

We study the complexity of the flow in the region of attraction of an isolated invariant set. More precisely, we define the instablity depth, which is an ordinal and measures how far an isolated

Stable and unstable minimal attractors

The study of compact invariant sets plays a central role in the qualitative theory of differential equations and dynamical systems. There are basic difficulties in this study. 1. The compact



Cohomology of chain recurrent sets

Abstract Let ϕ be a flow on a compact metric space Λ and let p ∈ Λ be chain recurrent. We show that (Λ; ℝ) ≠ 0 if dimp Λ = 1 or if p belongs to a section of ϕ. Applications to planar flows and to

An ideal-valued cohomological index theory with applications to Borsuk—Ulam and Bourgin—Yang theorems

Abstract Numerical-valued cohomological index theories for G-pairs (X, A) over B, where G is a compact Lie group, have proved useful in critical point theory and in proving Borsuk—Ulam and

Local sections of flows on manifolds

We show the existence of local sections for dynamical systems on manifolds which are themselves generalized manifolds of codimension one. One implication of this is that the level surfaces of
