### homeomorphisms induced by composant rotations in the solenoid

Let $S$ be the dyadic solenoid.
Let $x\in S$, and let $X$ be the union of all arcs (homeomorphic copies of $[0,1]$) in $S$ containing $x$.
$X$ is called a composant of $S$.
It is well-known ...

### Are there invariants of cell complexes similar to the Euler characteristic?

The Euler characteristic is an invariant (under homeomorphism) of manifolds that can be computed from a cellulation by (weighted) counting of different kinds of objects, namely
\begin{equation}
\chi=\...

### Automorphisms of Erdös spaces

It is well-known that there is an automorphism of the Cantor set $h:C\to C$ such that $\overline{\{h^n(c):n\in \mathbb Z\}}=C$ for every $c\in X$.
In other words, there is a self-homeomorphism of $C$...

### Similarities between isomorphism classes of homeomorphic directed graphs

To clarify, I'm speaking of homeomorphisms in a graph theoretic context, defined by subdivisions of arcs in a directed graph. A subdivision of an arc $(x,z)$ in a directed graph is obtained by ...

### Extending homeomorphisms from closed countable sets to S^2

Let $A, B \subset S^2$ be closed, countable sets and $\phi \colon A \rightarrow B$ be a homeomorphism. Can we extend $\phi$ to a homeomorphism from $S^2$ to itself?
It is well-known that the answer ...
