Abstract
We prove and then generalize Felix Browder's non-ejective fixed point theorem . This is done in several steps . First , following Browder , a rather intricate approxima- tion argument is used to prove that every continuous function from the Hilbert cube into itself has a non-repulsive fixed point . This requires a some background material from topology , which is discussed in the Appendix ; we also prove the Lefschetz fixed point theorem , the homogeneity of the Hilbert cube , and the Alexandroff mapping theorem as intermediate steps in proving the existence of non-repulsive fixed points . Next , again following Browder , we prove the existence of a non-ejective fixed point for every self map of the Hilbert cube . Finally , it is shown that Browder's theorem is true when fixed points are replaced by invariant Z-sets with trivial shape . This is a new generalization of Browder's theorem .
