Abstract: This paper contains sufficient conditions under which a map whose domain is a compact set is a bijection onto a given set. Relative to certain isoparametric finite element maps, one set of conditions involves the nonvanishing of the Jacobian; another the notion of overspill. An algorithm based on elimination is given for the numerical inversion of these maps.
