Periodic orbits and fixed points of a \(C^ 1\) orientation-preserving embedding of \(D^ 2\). (English) Zbl 0711.57019
Summary: We prove that any periodic orbit \({\mathcal O}\) of a \(C^ 1\) orientation- preserving embedding f of the 2-disc \(D^ 2\) is linked with a fixed point \({\mathcal P}\) in the sense that the corresponding periodic orbits \(\{\Phi_ t({\mathcal O})\}_{t\geq 0}\) and \(\{\Phi_ t({\mathcal P})\}_{t\geq 0}\) of any torus flow \(\Phi_ t\) suspending f are linked as knots in \(S^ 3\).
