As a consequence, any vector bundle over a contractible space is trivial.

Subsets of manifolds that are of measure zero were introduced. I proved that this definition does not depend on the chosen regular value and coincides for homotopic maps. Pollack, Differential TopologyPrentice Hall Then basic notions concerning manifolds were reviewed, such as: In the end I established a preliminary version of Whitney’s embedding Theorem, i.

At the beginning I gave a short motivation for differential topology. This reduces to proving that any two vector bundles which are concordant i. Then I revisted Whitney’s embedding Theoremand extended it to non-compact manifolds. Complete and sign the license agreement.

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

Then I defined the compact-open and strong topology on the set of continuous functions between topological spaces. As an application of the jet version, I deduced that the set of Morse functions on a smooth manifold forms an open and dense subset with respect to the strong topology.

In others, the students are guided step-by-step through proofs of fundamental results, such as the Jordan-Brouwer separation theorem. I also proved the parametric version of TT and the jet version.

The proof relies on the approximation results and an extension result for the strong topology. I continued to discuss the degree of a map between compact, oriented manifolds of equal dimension. In the second part, I defined the normal bundle of a submanifold and proved the existence of tubular neighborhoods. 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.


I defined the intersection number of a map and a manifold and the intersection number of two submanifolds. 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:. 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 tuillemin some open cover. The standard notions that are taught in the first course on Differential Geometry e. Differntial is a midterm examination and differental final examination.

The existence of such a section is equivalent to splitting the vector bundle into a trivial line bundle and a vector bundle hopology lower rank. It asserts that the set of all singular values of any smooth manifold is a subset of measure zero.

The course provides an introduction to differential topology. The text is mostly self-contained, requiring only undergraduate analysis and linear algebra. I proved homotopy invariance of pull backs. 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.

By inspecting the proof of Whitney’s embedding Theorem for compact manifoldsrestults about approximating functions by immersions and embeddings were obtained.

Some are routine explorations of the main material. Browse the current eBook Collections price list. The basic idea is to control the values of a function as well as its derivatives over a compact subset. It is a jewel of mathematical exposition, judiciously picking exactly the right mixture of detail and generality to display the richness within.

Towards the end, differentiial 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 presented three equivalent ways to think about these concepts: I defined the linking number and the Hopf map and described some applications. The proof of this relies on the fact that the identity map of the sphere is not homotopic to a constant map.

I plan to cover the following topics: An exercise section in Chapter 4 leads the student through a construction of de Rham cohomology and a proof of its homotopy invariance. I mentioned the existence of classifying spaces for rank k vector bundles. I proved that any vector bundle whose rank is strictly larger than the dimension of the manifold admits such a section. This allows to extend the degree to all continuous maps.

I stated guullemin problem of fuillemin which vector bundles admit nowhere vanishing sections. 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.

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.

The projected date for the final examination is Wednesday, January23rd.

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. This, in turn, was proven by globalizing diferential corresponding denseness result for maps from a closed ball to Euclidean space.
