Abstract: This paper concerns conditions on the point inverses of a mapping between manifolds which insure that it is an approximate fibration almost everywhere. The primary condition is -movability, which says roughly that nearby point inverses include isomorphically on the th shape group into a mutual neighborhood. Suppose is a mapping which is -movable for , and . An earlier paper proved that is an approximate fibration when . If instead , this paper proves that there is a locally finite set such that is an approximate fibration. Also if and all of the point inverses are FANR's with the same shape, then there is a locally finite set such that is an approximate fibration.
