# homotopy extension property

Let $X$ be a topological space and $A$ a subspace of $X$. Suppose there is a continuous map $f:X\to Y$ and a homotopy of maps $F:A\times I\to Y$. The inclusion map $i:A\to X$ is said to have the *homotopy extension property* if there exists a continuous map $F^{{{}^{{\prime}}}}$ such that the following diagram commutes:

$\SelectTips{eu}{}\xymatrix{&A\ar[d]^{{i}}\ar[r]^{{i_{{0}}}}&A\times I\ar[d]^{{% F}}\ar@/^{1}.5pc/[dd]^{{i\times id_{{I}}}}\\ &X\ar[r]^{{f}}\ar[dr]^{{i_{{0}}}}&Y\\ &&X\times I\ar[u]_{{F^{{{}^{{\prime}}}}}}}$ |

Here, $i_{0}=(x,0)$ for all $x\in X$.
