Space filling curves

The classic Hahn-Mazurkiewicz theorem has the following consequence: Let $X$ be a compact, connected topological manifold. Then there is a continuous surjective map $f: [0,1] \rightarrow X$. It is ...

Orthogonal Hamiltonian cycles in (n x n x n) grids

Let $C_n$ be a cubical $n \times n \times n$ subset of the integer lattice, so consisting of $n^3$ vertices. I am interested in special Hamiltonian cycles in $C_n$, special in the sense that (a) each ...

Domino tiling obtained from space-filling curves, is possible to predict basic properties?

Periodic and aperiodic domino tiling systems can be obtained by the following construction rules: Draw a regular square grid n×n of n2 cells. Select a space-filling curve that is consistent with ...

Is the Hilbert space-filling curve bijective over computable numbers?

The Hilbert curve is a continuous space-filling curve that maps $I$ to $I^n$ where $I$ denotes the unit interval [1]. Like all other space-filling curves, it is not one-to-one. I am wondering if the ...

Topological dimension of the image of continuous surjective functions

Consider two topological spaces $(X,\tau)$ and $(Y,\omega)$ and a continuous surjective function $f\colon X\to Y$. Let $\mathrm{dim}(X)$ and $\mathrm{dim}(Y)$ denote the Lebesgue covering dimension ...

Space filling curve whose all level sets are finite (countable)

Is there a continuous surjective function $f:[0,1] \to [0,1]^2$ such that every level set $f^{-1}(y)$ is a finite set? If the answer is no, what about if we replace the finiteness of level sets by "...

Quantitative estimates on space filling curves

To my understanding, quantitative topology/geometry makes statements quantitative. Examples: 1. a quantitative version of Invariance of Dimension is waist inequality. 2. Lusternik-Fet says a closed ...

Do Peano curves provide a counterargument to Grothendieck's critique?

This question arose in the context of an earlier question on Grothendieck's critique of the traditional foundations of topology. Can the paper Group Invariant Peano Curves by Cannon and Thurston be ...

Proof that no differentiable space-filling curve exists

Could someone provide a reference or a sketch of a proof that no differentiable space-filling curve exists? Or piecewise differentiable? Must every continuous space-filling curve be nowhere ...

Space filling curve to simplify vector addition? [closed]

Since points on a euclidean plane can be represented by one coordinate on a space-filling curve, is there any curve such that if two vectors $(x_0,y_0)$ and $(x_1,y_1)$ were represented by $a$ and $b$,...

convexity of images of space-filling curves

Suppose $f:[0,1]\to[0,1]^2$ is continuous and for each $t\in[0,1]$, the area of $\lbrace f(s) : 0\le s\le t \rbrace$ is $t$. For what sets of values of $t\in[0,1]$ can $\lbrace f(s) : 0\le s\le t \...

Unusual space-filling curve

Around 1998, I encountered a (forgotten) reference to a particularly strange space-filling curve. Consider a foliation as a collection of continuous nonintersecting curves that start at $(0,0)$ and ...

Are there space filling curves for the Hilbert cube?

There is a surjective continuous map $[0;1]\rightarrow [0;1]^2$ ("space filling curve"). Using such a map one can easily get space filling curves for all finite dimensional cubes. So my question is: ...
