Abstract: We investigate fixed-point sets of autohomeomorphisms of compact F-spaces. If the space in question is finite dimensional (in the sense of covering dimension), then the fixed-point set is a P-set; on the other hand there is an infinite-dimensional compact F-space with an involution whose fixed-point set is not a P-set.

In addition we show that under CH a closed subset of $ {\omega ^ \ast }$ is a P-set iff it is the fixed-point set of an autohomeomorphism.
