Level Sets on Disks

Abstract We prove that every continuous function from a disk to the real line has a level set containing a connected component of diameter at least \documentclass{article} \pagestyle{empty}\begin{document} $\sqrt 3$ \end{document} . We also show that if the disk is split into two sets—one open and the other closed—then one of them contains a component of diameter at least \documentclass{article} \pagestyle{empty}\begin{document} $\sqrt 3$ \end{document} .
