The fundamental group of reduced suspensions

  title={The fundamental group of reduced suspensions},
  author={Samuel M. Corson and Wolfram Hojka},
  journal={arXiv: Group Theory},
We classify pointed spaces according to the first fundamental group of their reduced suspension. A pointed space is either of so-called totally path disconnected type or of horseshoe type. These two camps are defined topologically but a characterization is given in terms of fundamental groups. Among totally path disconnected spaces the fundamental group is shown to be a complete invariant for a notion of topological equivalence weaker than that of homeomorphism.

We strengthen previous results on the fundamental groups of the Hawaiian earring and wild Peano continua. Let X be a path-connected, locally path-connected, first countable space which is not locally
Archipelago groups
The classical archipelago is a non-contractible subset of R3 which is homeomorphic to a disk except at one non-manifold point. Its fundamental group, A , is the quotient of the topologist’s product
