By SP^n(X) we denote the n-fold symmetric product of a topological space X. We have investigated the problem what kind of n-dimensional compact metric spaces can be embedded into the n-fold symmetric product SP^n(X) of a one-dimensional continuum X. Our result is the following :
Theorem 1. The n-dimensional sphere S^n cannot be embedded into the n-fold symmetric product of any one-dimensional continuum X.
In order to prove Theorem we have calculated the n-dimensional cohomology group of the bouquet of the 1-sphere S^1. In fact, we showed that the n-fold symmetric product of the bouquet of the 1-sphere S^1 can be embedded into the Cartesian product of the n-fold symmetric products of 1-sphere S^1. Moreover the embedding image is the retract of the product space. Therefore we can calculate cohomology group of the symmetric product as follows :
Theorem 2. H^n(SP^n(vS^1)) is isomorphic to the direct sum of the n-dimensional cohomology groups of the n-dimensional tori.
Theorem 1 follows from Theorem 1 by Dydak-Koyama(Bull. Polish Academy of Sciences, 2000, 48(1), 51-56).
We have another notion of symmetric products. Namely, for a topological space X let F_n(X) be the set of all nonempty subsets of X whose cardinalities are at most n. We often call F_n(X) endowed the Hausdorff metric the n-fold symmetric product of X. In general, F_2n(X) is equal to SP^2(X), but if n > 2, F_n(X) is different from SP^n(X). However, as those product have similarities, we have the same problem what kind of n-dimensional compact metric spaces can be embedded into the n-fold symmetric product F_n(X) of a one-dimensional continuum X. As a folhlore we know Borsuk-Bott Theorem: F_3(S^1) is isomorphic to the 3-dimensional sphere S^3. We also investigate this theorem and give a modern proof and a generalizations.
