Abstract

We prove that for any connected compact CW-complex $K$ there exists a space $X$ weak homotopy equivalent to $K$ which has the fixed point property, that is, every continuous map $X\to X$ has a fixed point. The result is known to be false if we require $X$ to be a polyhedron. The space $X$ we construct is a non-Hausdorff space with finitely many points.
