Assume is compact, non-empty, perfect, and homeomorphic to its Cartesian square, . Must be homeomorphic to the Cantor set, the Hilbert Cube, or some combination of them?

Hints are appreciated.

Thanks

I think that must be homeomorphic to a combination of the two.

Is this a hard problem in general?

To be honest, I know I'm curious as to how shilz222 is going to combine the Cantor set and the Hilbert cube...
