Various transversality statements where proven with the help of Sard’s Theorem and the Globalization Theorem both established in the previous class. Complete and sign the license agreement.

I stated the problem of understanding which vector bundles admit nowhere vanishing plllack. Some are routine explorations of the main material.

The proof of this relies on the fact that the identity map of the sphere is not homotopic to a constant map. The rules for passing the course: It is the topology whose basis is given by allowing for infinite intersections of memebers of the subbasis which defines the weak topology, as long as the corresponding collection of charts on M is locally finite.

I outlined a proof of the fact.

In the end I defined isotopies and the vertical derivative and showed that all tubular neighborhoods of a fixed submanifold can be related by isotopies, up to restricting to a neighborhood of the zero section and the action of an automorphism of the normal bundle. It asserts that the set of all singular values of any smooth manifold is a subset of measure zero. I showed that, in the oriented case and under the assumption that the rank equals the dimension, the Euler number is the only obstruction to the existence of nowhere vanishing sections.


I first discussed orientability and orientations of manifolds. Concerning embeddings, one first ueses the local result to find a neighborhood Y of a given embedding f in the strong topology, such that any map contained in this neighborhood is an embedding when restricted to the memebers of some open cover.

I presented three equivalent ways to think about these concepts: I used Tietze’s Extension Theorem and the fact that a smooth mapping to a sphere, which is defined on the boundary of a manifolds, extends smoothly to the whole manifold if and only if the degree is zero. In the end I established a preliminary version of Whitney’s embedding Theorem, differentjal.

For AMS eBook frontlist subscriptions or backfile collection purchases: I introduced submersions, immersions, stated the normal form theorem for functions of locally constant rank and defined embeddings and transversality between a map and a submanifold. Email, fax, or send via postal mail to:. Then a version of Sard’s Theorem was proved. An exercise section in Chapter 4 leads the student through a construction of de Rham cohomology and a proof of its homotopy invariance.

I plan to cover the following topics: There is a midterm examination and a final examination. This, in turn, was proven by gkillemin the corresponding denseness result for maps from a closed ball to Euclidean space. The proof relies on the approximation results and an extension result for the strong topology.


Moreover, I showed that if the rank equals the dimension, there is always a section that vanishes at exactly one point. Pollack, Differential TopologyPrentice Hall A final mark above 5 is needed in order to pass the course. The Euler number was defined as the intersection number of the zero section of an oriented vector bundle with itself.

As a consequence, any vector bundle over a contractible space is trivial. I proved that this definition does not difefrential on the chosen regular value and coincides for homotopic maps.

Readership Undergraduate and graduate students interested in differential topology. By inspecting the proof of Whitney’s embedding Theorem for compact manifoldsrestults about approximating functions by immersions and embeddings were obtained. Then I revisted Guille,in embedding Theoremand extended it to non-compact manifolds. Subsets of manifolds that are of measure zero were introduced. The proof consists of an inductive procedure and a relative version of an apprixmation result for maps between open subsets of Euclidean spaces, which is proved with the help of convolution kernels.
