TL;DR: In this article, a stronger form of LC-continuity called contracontinuity is introduced, where the preimage of every open set is closed and every strongly S-closed space satisfies FCC and hence is nearly compact.

Abstract: In 1989 Ganster and Reilly [6] introduced and studied the notion of LC-continuous functions via the concept of locally closed sets. In this paper we consider a stronger form of LC-continuity called contra-continuity. We call a function f:(X,τ)→(Y,σ) contra-continuous if the preimage of every open set is closed. A space (X,τ) is called strongly S-closed if it has a finite dense subset or equivalently if every cover of (X,τ) by closed sets has a finite subcover. We prove that contra-continuous images of strongly S-closed spaces are compact as well as that contra-continuous, β-continuous images of S-closed spaces are also compact. We show that every strongly S-closed space satisfies FCC and hence is nearly compact.

01 May 1999TL;DR: In this paper, it was shown that if f satisfies a certain condition, which holds, in particular, if f has no wandering domains, then g−1(J(h))=J(f).

Abstract: Let f and h be transcendental entire functions and let g be a continuous and open map of the complex plane into itself with g∘f=h∘g. We show that if f satisfies a certain condition, which holds, in particular, if f has no wandering domains, then g−1(J(h))=J(f). Here J(·) denotes the Julia set of a function. We conclude that if f has no wandering domains, then h has no wandering domains. Further, we show that for given transcendental entire functions f and h, there are only countably many entire functions g such that g∘f=h∘g.

TL;DR: In this article, some results relating closed maps to compact sets are proved in a more general setting, and examples are given to indicate barriers to further improvements, which are already known for metrizable spaces.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors introduce and study three different notions of generalized continuity, namely LC-irresoluteness, LC-continuity, and sub-LCcontinuity.

Abstract: In this paper we introduce and study three different notions of generalized continuity, namely LC-irresoluteness, LC-continuity and sub-LC-continuity. All three notions are defined by using the concept of a locally closed set. A subset S of a topological space X is locally closed if it is the intersection of an open and a closed set. We discuss some properties of these functions and show that a function between topological spaces is continuous if and only if it is sub-LC-continuous and nearly continuous in the sense of Ptak. Several examples are provided to illustrate the behavior of these new classes of functions.
