Q & a in General Topology
A mapping between topological spaces is universal if it has a coincidence point with any mapping between the spaces. Given a mapping f between continua X and Y we denote by 21 (by C(J)) the induced mappings between hyperspaces of all nonempty compact subsets (of all nonempty subcontinua) of X and Y, respectively. Implications are discussed from universality of one of these three mappings to universality of the other ones. Some examples are constructed and questions are asked.
