Presentation complexes with the fixed point property

Iván Sadofschi Costa

Geometry & Topology 21 (2017) 1275–1283
Abstract

We prove that there exists a compact two-dimensional polyhedron with the fixed point property and even Euler characteristic. This answers a question posed by R H Bing in 1969. We also settle a second question by Bing regarding the homotopy invariance of the fixed point property in low dimensions.
