A pullback theorem for cofibrations

  • R. W. Kieboom


In this note we prove a pullback theorem for cofibrations, which extends a well known theorem of Strøm [5]. It also implies the pullback theorem of Heath [4] for locally equiconnected spaces. In addition, we comment on the dual problem of attaching fibrations.
