Higher Dimensions

Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 263)


The reader must have already noticed that in this book so far, we have only considered functions of the form f: [θ]2I or equivalently sequences
$$ f_\alpha :\alpha \to I\left( {\alpha < \theta } \right) $$
of one-place functions. To obtain analogous results about functions defined on higher-dimensional cubes [θ]n, one usually develops some form of stepping-up procedure that lifts a function of the form f: [θ]nI to a function of the form g: [θ+]n+1I. The basic idea seems quite simple. One starts with a coherent sequence eα: αθ (α < θ+) of one-to-one mappings and wishes to define g: [θ+]n+1I as follows:
$$ g\left( {\alpha _0 ,\alpha _1 , \ldots ,\alpha _n } \right) = f\left( {e\left( {\alpha _0 ,\alpha _n } \right), \ldots ,e\left( {\alpha _{n - 1} ,\alpha _n } \right)} \right). $$
