Fixed point theorems for maps with local and pointwise contraction properties
The paper constitutes a comprehensive study of ten classes of self-maps on metric spaces $\langle X,d\rangle$ with the local and pointwise (a.k.a. local radial) contraction properties. Each of those classes appeared previously in the literature in the context of fixed point theorems. We begin with presenting an overview of these fixed point results, including concise self contained sketches of their proofs. Then, we proceed with a discussion of the relations among the ten classes of self-maps with domains $\langle X,d\rangle$ having various topological properties which often appear in the theory of fixed point theorems: completeness, compactness, (path) connectedness, rectifiable path connectedness, and $d$-convexity. The bulk of the results presented in this part consists of examples of maps that show non-reversibility of the previously established inclusions between theses classes. Among these examples, the most striking is a differentiable auto-homeomorphism $f$ of a compact perfect subset $X$ of $\mathbb R$ with $f'\equiv 0$, which constitutes also a minimal dynamical system. We finish with discussing a few remaining open problems on weather the maps with specific pointwise contraction properties must have the fixed points.

First Countable Continua and Proper Forcing
Assuming the Continuum Hypothesis, there is a compact, first countable, connected space of weight $\aleph_1$ with no totally disconnected perfect subsets. Each such space, however, may be destroyed by some proper forcing order which does not add reals.

Keywords:connected space, Continuum Hypothesis, proper forcing, irreducible map

Structure Theory of Totally Disconnected Locally Compact Groups via Graphs and Permutations
Willis's structure theory of totally disconnected locally compact groups is investigated in the context of permutation actions. This leads to new interpretations of the basic concepts in the theory and also to new proofs of the fundamental theorems and to several new results. The treatment of Willis's theory is self-contained and full proofs are given of all the fundamental results.

Keywords:totally disconnected locally compact groups, scale function, permutation groups, groups acting on graphs
