The disjoint arcs property for homogeneous curves
The local structure of homogeneous continua (curves) is studied. Components of open subsets of each homogeneous curve which is not a solenoid have the disjoint arcs property. If the curve is aposyndetic, then the components are nonplanar. A new characterization of solenoids is formulated: a continuum is a solenoid if and only if it is homogeneous, contains no terminal nontrivial subcontinua and small subcontinua are not ∞-ods.
