Abstract: If X is an arbitrary compact set in a manifold, we give algebraic criteria on X and on its embedding to determine that X has an arbitrarily small, closed neighborhood each component of which is a pconnected, piecewise linear manifold which collapses to a qdimensional subpolyhedron from some p and q. This property generalizes cellularity. The criteria are in terms of UV properties and AlexanderSpanier cohomology. These criteria are then applied to decide when the components of a given compact set in a manifold are elements of a decomposition such that the quotient space is the nsphere. Conversely, algebraic criteria are given for the point inverses of a map between manifolds to have arbitrarily small neighborhoods of the type mentioned above; these criteria are considerably weaker than for an arbitrary compact set.
