Whitney Maps-a Non-metric Case

  title={Whitney Maps-a Non-metric Case},
  author={Janusz J. Charatonik},
It is shown that there is no Whitney map on the hyperspace 2x for nonmetrizable Hausdorff compact spaces X. Examples are presented of non-metrizable continua X which admit and ones which do not admit a Whitney map for C(X). Given a Hausdorff compact space X, we consider the space 2x of all non-empty compact subsets of X equipped with the Vietoris topology. Any subspace H (X) of the space 2x is called a hyperspace of X. In particular Fn(X) stands for the family of all non-empty subsets of X of… CONTINUE READING
