A two sided approximation theorem for 2-spheres

William Thomas Eaton

Vol. 44 (1973), No. 2, 461–485

The side approximation theorem proved by R. H. Bing and later improved by F. M. Lister states that a sphere S topologically embedded in Euclidean three space can be 𝜖 approximated with polyhedral spheres g(S) and h(S) such that g(S −∪Gi) Int S,g(Gi) S Gi,h(S −∪Hi) ExtS, and h(Hi) S Hi where {Gi} and {Hi} are respectively finite collections of disjoint 𝜖-disks in S. In this article the theorem is strengthened by showing that the sets Gi and Hi may also be taken to be disjoint.
