Approximating Kelley Continua by Rays
We investigate what Kelley continua can be approximated by a ray in such a way that the union is a Kelley continua. We show that continua containing triods may not be approximated in this manner, while for hereditarily indecomposable continua, every approximation works. Our main result is that that such an approximation exists for any arc-like continua.
