Abstract: In this paper the preservation of the fixed point property under UV decompositions is studied. It is shown that if K is an n-dimensional complex with the fixed point property and G is $ U{V^{n - 1}}$ decomposition of K, then K/G also will have the fixed point property. Furthermore, if X is a compact metric space with the fixed point property, and G is a $ U{V^n}$ decomposition of X such that X/G may be embedded in a suitably small Euclidian space, $ {R^m}$, then X/G retains the fixed point property.
