Arithmetic is the technological know-how of acts with out issues - and during this, of items one could outline by means of acts. 1 Paul Valéry The essays gathered during this quantity shape a mosaik of concept, examine, and perform directed on the job of spreading mathematical wisdom. They tackle questions raised via the recurrent commentary that, all too usually, the current methods and technique of instructing arithmetic generate within the scholar a long-lasting aversion opposed to numbers, instead of an realizing of the helpful and occasionally spell binding issues you'll do with them.

B / 6 . I < b / 2 . ). I < b / 2 P . W The diagonal sequence (x;) is Cauchy. Returning to the proof of Theorem 6, we fix s E S and consider [x,,)where H,+l(x,) = s. We claim that [ U,] is a decreasing nest. To see this, if g , + l c W E Uu+2,we have s= Hfl+Z(X,+l)E Hn+Z(gn+l) c Hn+2(W)c Hn+l(U,+l), which implies that x, = H,L1l(s)E U,,+I,and g, C Vn+1 as well.

H. Bing [2] set forth several conditions about countable cellular decompositions of E 3 implying shrinkability. His techniques depended on nothing intrinsically 42 11. The Shrinkability Criterion 3-dimensional ; the arguments functioned equally well in any Euclidean space. Among the first to recognize the potential generality of Bing’s methods was L. F. McAuley (21, who adapted them to nonmanifold settings by isolating a useful shrinkability property inherent in the notion of cellularity. With it we shall investigate conditions comparable to Bing’s implying shrinkability for decompositions of complete metric spaces.

This argument is probably more important than the result just established. Given an open cover V by sets with the favorite property of the moment and given any neighborhood W of g E G , we produced a homeomorphism h showing g C h-'( V ) C W , for some V E V. The consequence merits explicit statement. Proposition 12. Let 6 represent a topological property applicable to subsets of a given space. Suppose G is a shrinkable decomposition of a regular space S in which each point s E S has arbitrarily small neighborhoods satisfying 6.
