Abstract: Let be a finitely triangulated disk; a map is called simplexwise linear if is affine linear for each (closed) simplex of . Interest in maps originated with work of S. S. Cairns and subsequent work of R. Thom and N. H. Kuiper. Let , , and denote their respective closures in the space of all maps and the space of all maps fixing . The main result of this paper is useful characterizations of maps in and some maps in , including the relation of such maps to embeddings into the nonstandard plane.
