A formula for the norm of the r’th differential of pollqck composition of two functions was established in the proof. An exercise section in Chapter 4 leads the differentiap through a construction of de Rham cohomology and a proof of its homotopy invariance. 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.

I proved that any vector bundle whose rank is strictly larger than the dimension of the manifold admits such a section. Browse the current eBook Collections price pollacm. It is the topology whose basis is given by allowing for infinite intersections of memebers of the subbasis topollgy defines the weak topology, as long as the corresponding collection of charts on M is locally finite.

The standard notions that are taught in the first course on Differential Geometry e. The book is suitable for either an introductory graduate course or an advanced undergraduate course. In the second part, I defined the normal bundle of a submanifold and proved the existence of tubular neighborhoods. I first discussed orientability and orientations of manifolds.

As a consequence, any vector bundle over a contractible space is trivial. I plan to cover the following topics: The Euler number was defined as the intersection number of the zero section of an oriented vector bundle with itself.

Readership Undergraduate and graduate students interested in differential topology. 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. This reduces to proving that any two vector bundles which are concordant i.


Then I defined the compact-open and strong topology on the set of continuous functions between topological spaces.

I presented three equivalent ways to think about topoligy concepts: Pollack, Differential TopologyPrentice Hall The projected date for the final examination is Wednesday, January23rd. I continued to discuss the degree of a map between compact, oriented manifolds of equal dimension. 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.

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.

In the years since its first publication, Guillemin and Pollack’s book has become a standard text on the subject.

I mentioned the existence of classifying spaces for rank k vector bundles. Subsets of manifolds that are of measure zero were introduced. Various transversality statements where proven with the help of Sard’s Theorem and the Globalization Theorem both established in the previous class.

In the end I established a preliminary version of Whitney’s embedding Theorem, i. I stated the problem of understanding which vector bundles admit nowhere vanishing sections. The proof of this relies on the fact that the identity map of the sphere is not homotopic to a constant map.

Differential Topology

I proved that this definition does not depend on the chosen regular value and coincides for homotopic maps. Moreover, I showed that if the rank equals the dimension, there is always a section that vanishes at exactly one point. One then finds another neighborhood Z of f such that functions in the intersection of Y and Gyillemin are forced to be embeddings.


Then a version of Sard’s Theorem was proved. I defined the intersection number of a map and a manifold differentiak the intersection number of two submanifolds.

For AMS eBook frontlist subscriptions or backfile collection purchases: The basic idea is to control the values of a function as well as its derivatives over a compact subset. Email, fax, or send via postal mail to: Then basic notions concerning manifolds were reviewed, such as: The rules for passing the course: 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 defined the linking number and the Hopf map cifferential described some applications. To subscribe to the current year of Memoirs of the AMSplease download this required license agreement.

I also proved the parametric version of TT and the jet version.

I outlined a proof of the fact. Then I revisted Whitney’s embedding Theoremand extended it to non-compact manifolds. 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.

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