An approximation theorem for maps into Kan fibrations

Rudolf Fritsch

Vol. 65 (1976), No. 2, 347–351
Abstract

In this note we prove that a semisimplicial map into the base of a Kan fibration having a continuous lifting to the total space also has a semisimplicial lifiting, very “close” to a given continuous lifting. As a special case we obtain a new proof of the famous Milnor-Lamotke theorem that a Kan set is a strong deformation retract of the singular set of its geometric realization.
