Fixed point property of amenable planar vortexes




amenable group, CW space, fixed point, planar vortex, presentation


This article introduces free group representations of planar vortexes in a CW space that are a natural outcome of results for amenable groups and fixed points found by M.M. Day during the 1960s and a fundamental result for fixed points given by L.E.J. Brouwer.
