On Plane Arc-smooth Structures

Abstract

Arc-structures on subspaces of the plane are studied in the paper. It is shown that each plane arc-smooth continuum admits an embedding in the plane such that its arc-smooth structure can be nicely extended to an arc-smooth structure on the whole plane. Using this it is proved that each plane arc-smooth continuum is a retract of the hyperspace of its closed subsets. Among several applications it is pointed out that each planar smooth dendroid admits a mean.
