Regular homeomorphisms of \(\mathbb{R}^3\) and of \(\mathbb{S}^3\). (English) Zbl 1397.37025
The author shows that every compact abelian group of homeomorphisms of \(\mathbb{R}^3\) is either zero-dimensional or equivalent to a subgroup of the orthogonal group O\((3)\). A similar result is proved for \(\mathbb{S}^3\). Regular homeomorphisms that are conjugate to their inverses are also investigated.
