* Non-removable sets for quasiconformal and locally biLipschitz mappings in R^3*

Abstract: We give an example of a totally disconnected set $E \subset {\Bbb R}^3$ which is not removable for quasiconformal
homeomorphisms, i.e., there is a homeomorphism $f$ of ${\Bbb
R}^3$ to itself which is quasiconformal off $E$, but not
quasiconformal on all of ${\Bbb R}^3$. The set $E$ may be
taken with Hausdorff dimension $2$. The construction also
gives a non-removable set for locally biLipschitz
homeomorphisms.
