Keywords:
bend set; pairwise smooth continuum; contractible continuum; curve; dendroid; fan; homotopy; pointwise smooth continuum; $Q$-point; selectible continuum; absolute end point; arc-like; decomposition; irreducible; locally connected; smoth
Summary:
A concept of an absolute end point introduced and studied by Ira Rosenholtz for arc-like continua is extended in the paper to be applied arbitrary irreducible continua. Some interrelations are studied between end points, absolute end points and points at which a given irreducible continuum is smooth.
