The Ingram conjecture

Marcy Barge, Henk Bruin and Sonja Štimac

Geometry & Topology 16 (2012) 2481–2516
Abstract

We prove the Ingram conjecture, ie we show that the inverse limit spaces of tent maps with different slopes in the interval [1,2] are nonhomeomorphic. Based on the structure obtained from the proof, we also show that every self-homeomorphism of the inverse limit space of a tent map is pseudo-isotopic, on the core, to some power of the shift homeomorphism.

Keywords
tent map, inverse limit space, unimodal map, classification, pseudo-isotopy
