# Problem 48

## Primary tabs

Suppose $F: C \to \mathbb{R}, C$ the Cantor set, has bounded total variation. Is there a homeo $g : [0,1] \to [0,1]$ and a diffeo (Lipschitz, maybe) $f:[0,1] \to \mathbb{R}$ such that $F = f\circ g |C.$

Maybe the homeomorphism g is not required to be defined on $[0,1]$ but only on $C$. Otherwize, $f\circ g$  is necessarily monotonous, and the answer of the question would be trivially "no".  Even with that the question still looks strange: someone is able to state hypotheses making the question pertinent?
