Abstract: A generalization of Edelstein's version of a theorem of Janos and its converse are obtained:

Theorem. Let X be a compact metrizable topological space, and f, g be continuous self-maps of X such that $ gf = fg$ and f is bijective. Then g is injective and $ \bigcap\nolimits_1^\infty {{g^n}X = \{ {x_0}\} } $, where $ {x_0} \in X$, iff, given $ \lambda ,0 < \lambda < 1$, a homeomorphism h of X into $ {l_2}$ exists such that

$\displaystyle \left\Vert {h(gx) - h(gy)} \right\Vert = \lambda \left\Vert {h(fx) - h(fy)} \right\Vert$

for all $ x,y \in X$.
