Mappings Confluent over Locally Connected Continua

A mapping is said to be confluent over locally connected continua if for each locally connected subcontinuum $Q$ of the range each component
of its preimage is mapped onto $Q$. For mappings of compact spaces this class is a very natural generalization of locally confluent mappings.
Various properties of these mappings are systematically studied in the paper.
