An Introduction to Algebraic Topology
D A hemisphere is **contractible** but not convex, so that the converse of Theorem
1.7 is not true. After proving Theorem 1.6, we observed that Lemma 0.2 implies
that S" is not **contractible**. Exercises 1.1. Let x0,x,e* and let /J: X -* X for i = 0, ...

Topological Fixed Point Theory of Multivalued Mappings
A space X is said to be locally **contractible** at a point x0 ∈ X provided for each ε >
0, there exists δ > 0 (δ < ε) and a homotopy h:[0,1] × B(x0 ,δ) → B(x0 ,ε) such that:
h(x,0) = x0 and h(x,1) = x, for every x ∈ B(x0 ,δ); in other words the ball B(x0 ,δ) ...

Topology
If M is a metric space and has a metric in which M is starlike, then M is

It is clear that Ji can be covered by two **contractible** open subsets: each subset is

Since X is **contractible**, it has the homotopy type of a CW-complex. Suppose there
