Extensions of maps to the projective plane

Abstract. It is proved that for a 3-dimensional compact metrizable space X the infinite real projective space is an absolute extensor of X if and only if the real projective plane is an absolute extensor of X.

Keywords. Cohomological and extensional dimensions, projective spaces
