Title: Continuous Images of Continua
Abstract: Interest in continuous images of topological objects has permeated the study of topology essentially from the beginning of the subject. Early on it was shown that every compact metric space is a continuous image of the Cantor set and continuous images of the interval were characterized as compact, connected and locally connected metric spaces. In this talk we discuss a relatively new area of topology, inverse limits with set-valued functions, and some relationships it has with continuous images of continua.
