The Topological Tverberg Problem and winding numbers

The Topological Tverberg Theorem claims that any continuous map of a (q-1)(d+1)-simplex to \R^d identifies points from q disjoint faces. (This has been proved for affine maps, for d=1, and if q is a prime power, but not yet in general.) The Topological Tverberg Theorem can be restricted to maps of the d-skeleton of the simplex. We further show that it is equivalent to a ``Winding Number Conjecture'' that concerns only maps of the (d-1)-skeleton of a (q-1)(d+1)-simplex to \R^d. ``Many Tverberg… 
3N Colored Points in a Plane
More than 50 years ago, the Cambridge undergraduate Bryan Birch showed that “3N points in a plane” can be split into N triples that span triangles with a non-empty intersection. He also conjectured a
Invariants of Graph Drawings in the Plane
A simplified exposition of some classical and modern results on graph drawings in the plane, as an introduction to starting ideas of algebraic topology motivated by algorithmic, combinatorial and geometric problems.
3N bunte Punkte in der Ebene
Warum uber den gefarbten Tverberg-Satz berichten? – Er klingt harmlos, elementar; unser „Spielmaterial“ sind ein paar bunte Punkte in der Ebene; – es gibt Geschichten zu erzahlen, etwa die von einem


On the Topological Tverberg Theorem
We introduce a new ``Winding Number Conjecture'' about maps from the $(d-1)$-skeleton of the $((d+1)(q-1))$-simplex into $\real^d$. This conjecture is equivalent to the Topological Tverberg Theorem.
Tverberg partitions and Borsuk–Ulam theorems
An N-dimensional real representation E of a finite group G is said to have the “Borsuk-Ulam Property” if any continuous G-map from the (N + 1)-fold join of G (an N-complex equipped with the diagonal

and proved it in the case n = 2. In the case n > 2, Birch proved a weaker result, with r(n+l) — n replaced by rn(n+l) — n — n+ 1. This was, for most r and n, an improvement of the earlier result, by
