Abstract: Infinite cone constructions are exploited to yield diverse generalizations of the Vietoris-Begle theorem for paracompact spaces and Abelian group sheaves. The constructions suggest natural space, map classifications designated as almost p-solid. The methods are extended to upper semicontinuous closed multivalued maps and homotopies and culminate in a disk fixed point theorem for possibly nonacyclic point images.
