Examples of the function space U are the classes of continuous functions C, the Kakutani maps K, the Aronszajn maps M (with [R.sub.[delta]] values), the acyclic maps V, the Powers maps [V.sub.c], the O'Neil maps N (continuous with values of one or m acyclic components, where m is fixed), the approachable maps A (whose domains and codomains are subsets of uniform spaces), admissible maps of Gorniewicz, the Simons maps [K.sub.c], [sigma]-selectionable maps of Haddad and Lasry, permissible maps of Dzedzej, and others.
Concerning general codomains, the author, using Hall's sharp result, communicated around 1990 at Seminar University of Belgrade a proof of Corollary 16 and a version of Proposition 13; cf.
The new maps are one-to-one (hence bijections between appropriate domains and codomains) iff the original sweep maps are one-to-one.
(Throughout, in the labels of diagrams we omit indices A and B of n and [mu] since they can be uniquely determined from the domains and codomains of the respective arrows.)
