Convergence groups from subgroups

Eric L Swenson

Abstract. We give sufficient conditions for a group of homeomorphisms of a Peano continuum X without cut-points to be a convergence group. The condition is that there is a collection of convergence subgroups whose limit sets `cut up' X in the correct fashion. This is closely related to the result in [E Swenson, Axial pairs and convergence groups on S^1, Topology 39 (2000) 229-237].
