On $K\sb 1$-theory of the Euclidean space. (English) Zbl 0611.18007
It is shown that any $n$ by $n$ matrix of determinant 1, $n\ge 3$, whose entries are continuous real functions of $N=3$ variables, can be reduced to the identity matrix by addition operations (with continuous coefficients). In the case $n=2$, this is not true. The case of $N=1$ was done in a previous paper by a different method. The case of arbitrary $N$ is finished by a different method in a paper to appear in Proc. Am. Math. Soc. The similar result for polynomial functions (n$\ge 3)$ is due to A. Suslin.
