The author develops a concept of trace for mappings on vector spaces that are compatible with a filtration. Using this concept he defines a generalized Lefschetz number and applies this to uniform Hausdorff spaces with a filtration and corresponding (“admissible”) maps. Under certain natural assumptions the generalized Lefschetz number for such mappings will exist, and a nonvanishing Lefschetz number will give rise to an approximate fixed point. The details are highly laborious and too technical to be explained here.
