Non-degenerate locally connected models for plane continua and julia sets

Academic Article


  • Every plane continuum admits a finest locally connected model. The latter is a locally connected continuum onto which the original continuum projects in a monotone fashion. It may so happen that the finest locally connected model is a singleton. For example, this happens if the original continuum is indecomposable. In this paper, we provide sufficient conditions for the existence of a non-degenerate model depending on the existence of subcontinua with certain properties. Applications to complex polynomial dynamics are discussed.
