Abstract: A map $ f:X \to {R^n}$ is said to be k-regular if whenever $ {x_1}, \ldots ,{x_k}$ are distinct points of X, then $ f({x_1}), \ldots ,f({x_k})$ are linearly independent. Using configuration spaces and homological methods, it is shown that there does not exist a k-regular map from $ {R^n}$ into $ {R^{n(k - \alpha (k)) + \alpha (k) - 1}}$ where $ \alpha (k)$ denotes the number of ones in the dyadic expansion of k and n is a power of 2.
