    Hawaiian Earrings & Wedges...

    Hi guys,

    How can one construct continuous bijections between the wedge of infinitely many circles & the infinite union of circles with radius n & centre (n,0) in R^2?

    Also how do you construct a continuous bijection between the latter & the Hawaiian earring?

    Thanks x :-)

    I can sort of see conceptually how to do this, but how would you do this rigorously?

    Also, how could you use these 2 continuous bijections to show whether the 1st is a homeomorphism?

    Thanks x :-)
