Approximating polyhedra in codimension one spheres embedded in sn by tame polyhedra

Robert Jay Daverman

Vol. 51 (1974), No. 2, 417–426
Abstract

We investigate properties of an (n1)-sphere Σ topologically embedded in the n-sphere Sn(n 6) implying that each (n3)-dimensionaI polyhedron in Σ can be homeomorphically approximated by polyhedra in Σ that are tame in Sn. In case Σ bounds an n-cell, we relate these properties and the existence of homeomorphic approximations to Σ by locally flat spheres “mostly” outside this n-cell. This leads to a negative result eliminating a natural generalization to Bing’s Side Approximation Theorem.
