Irreducibility of inverse limits on intervals
A procedure for obtaining points of irreducibility for an inverse limit on intervals is developed. In connection with this, the following are included. A semiatriodic continuum is defined to be a continuum that contains no triod with interior. Characterizations of semiatriodic and unicoherent continua are given, as well as necessary and sufficient conditions for a subcontinuum of a semiatriodic and unicoherent continuum M to lie within the interior of a proper subcontinuum of M.
