Abstract: Let be a cell-like map between metric spaces and set . Even if , where each is closed and each is hereditary shape equivalence, may not be a hereditary shape equivalence. Conditions are placed on the 's to assure that is a hereditary shape equivalence. For example, if , where is closed for each is a hereditary shape equivalence, and has arbitrary small neighborhoods whose boundaries miss then is a hereditary shape equivalence. An immediate consequence is that if is a pairwise disjoint null-sequence and each is a hereditary shape equivalence, then is a hereditary shape equivalence. Previously G. Kozlowski showed that if is a pairwise disjoint null-sequence and each is a hereditary shape equivalence, then is a hereditary shape equivalence, which can be obtained as an immediate corollary of one of our results.
