Abstract: A method of extending homeomorphisms between compacta metric spaces is presented. The main application is that homeomorphisms between compacta of an infinite-dimensional locally convex metric linear space extend to the whole space. A lemma used in the proof of this fact together with the method of absorbing sets is employed to show that every -compact normed linear space is homeomorphic to a dense linear subspace of a Hilbert space. A discussion of the relative topological equivalence of absorbing sets in noncomplete spaces is included. The paper is concluded with some controlled versions of an isotopy extension theorem.
