Subsets of manifolds that are of measure zero were introduced. Towards the end, basic knowledge of Algebraic Topology definition and elementary properties of homology, cohomology and homotopy groups, weak homotopy equivalences might be helpful, but I will review the relevant constructions and facts in the lecture.

I plan to cover the following topics: Pollack, Differential TopologyPrentice Hall A formula for the norm of the r’th differential of a composition of two functions was established in the proof. The existence of such a section is equivalent to splitting the vector bundle into a trivial line bundle and a vector bundle of lower rank.

The proof of this relies on the fact that the identity map of the sphere is not homotopic to a constant map. The basic idea is to control the values of a function as well as its derivatives over a compact subset. The rules for passing the course: By relying on a unifying idea—transversality—the authors are able to avoid the use of big machinery or ad hoc techniques to establish the main results.

The book is suitable for either an introductory graduate course or an advanced undergraduate course. Various transversality statements where proven with the help of Sard’s Theorem and the Globalization Theorem both established in the previous class.

I presented three equivalent ways to think about these concepts: I proved homotopy invariance of pull backs. I stated the problem of understanding which vector bundles admit nowhere vanishing sections. In the end I established a preliminary version of Whitney’s embedding Theorem, i.

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.


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. A final mark above 5 is needed in order to pass the course. There is a midterm examination and a final examination. Immidiate consequences are that 1 any two disjoint closed subsets can be separated by disjoint open subsets and 2 for any member of an open cover one can find a closed subset, such that the resulting collection of closed subsets still covers the whole manifold.

I first discussed orientability and orientations of manifolds. 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. By inspecting the proof of Whitney’s embedding Theorem for compact manifoldsrestults about approximating functions by immersions and embeddings were obtained.

The main aim was to show that homotopy classes of maps from a compact, connected, oriented manifold to the sphere of the same dimension are classified by the degree.

In the end I defined isotopies and the vertical derivative and showed that all polladk 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. Then basic notions concerning manifolds were reviewed, such as: The projected date for the final examination is Wednesday, January23rd. I outlined a proof of the fact.

The course provides an introduction to differential topology.

Some are routine explorations of the main material. In others, the students are guided step-by-step through proofs of fundamental results, such as the Jordan-Brouwer separation theorem. This allows to extend the degree to all continuous maps. This, in turn, was proven by globalizing the corresponding denseness result for maps from a closed ball to Euclidean space.

For AMS eBook frontlist subscriptions or backfile collection purchases: I defined the toology number and the Hopf map and described some applications. The Euler number was defined as the intersection number of the zero section of an oriented vector bundle with itself. The book has a wealth of exercises of various types.

Differential Topology

Then I defined the compact-open and strong topology on the set of continuous functions between topological spaces. To subscribe to the current year of Memoirs of the AMSplease download this required license agreement. Then a version of Sard’s Theorem was proved. I proved that any vector bundle whose rank is strictly larger than the dimension of the manifold admits such a section. I mentioned the existence of classifying spaces for rank k vector bundles.

In the years since its first publication, Guillemin and Pollack’s book has become a standard text on the subject. Email, fax, or send via postal mail to: It asserts that the set of all singular values of any smooth manifold is a subset of measure zero. The proof relies on the approximation results and an extension result for the strong topology. At the beginning I gave a short motivation for differential topology.

The standard notions that topolkgy taught in the first course on Differential Geometry e.

One then finds another neighborhood Z of f such that functions in the intersection of Y and Z are forced to be embeddings. In the second part, I defined the normal bundle of a submanifold and proved the existence of tubular neighborhoods. I also proved the parametric version of TT and the jet version.
