Extending Whitney maps

L. E. Ward

Vol. 93 (1981), No. 2, 465–469
Abstract

The following theorems are proved, (1) If X is a continuum then any Whitney map for C(X), the space of subcontinua of X, can be extended to a Whitney map for 2X, the space of nonempty closed subsets of X. (2) If Y is a continuum and X is a subcontinuum of Y then any Whitney map for C(X) (resp., 2X) can be extended to a Whitney map for C(Y ) (resp., 2Y ). The proofs entail recasting these problems in the more inclusive setting of partially ordered spaces and then employing results of Nachbin.
