Every contractible fan is locally connected at its vertex

Academic Article

Abstract

  • We prove that each contractible fan is locally connected at its vertex. It follows that every contractible fan is embeddable in the plane. This gives a solution to a problem raised by J. J. Charatonik and C. A. Eberhart. © 1980 American Mathematical Society.
