Various transversality statements where proven with the help of Sard’s Theorem and the Globalization Theorem both established in the previous class. This allows to extend the degree to all continuous maps.

Moreover, I showed that if the rank equals the dimension, there is always a section that vanishes at exactly one point. The course provides an introduction to differential topology.
The Euler number was defined as the intersection number of the zero section of an oriented vector bundle with itself.
A final mark above 5 is needed in order to pass the course. A formula for the norm of the r’th differential of topolkgy composition of two functions was established in the proof. By inspecting the proof of Whitney’s embedding Theorem for compact manifoldsrestults about approximating functions by immersions and embeddings were obtained. The rules for passing the course: Then I revisted Whitney’s embedding Theoremand extended it to non-compact manifolds.
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 diifferential automorphism of the normal bundle. At the beginning I gave a short motivation for differential topology. 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.
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 first discussed orientability and orientations of manifolds.
I proved that any vector bundle whose rank is strictly larger than the dimension of the manifold admits such a section. The text is mostly self-contained, requiring only undergraduate analysis and linear algebra. 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.
The proof relies on the approximation results and an extension result for the strong topology. Complete and sign the license agreement. In the end I established a preliminary version of Whitney’s embedding Theorem, i. In the years since its first publication, Guillemin and Pollack’s book has become a standard text on the subject.
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. I proved that this definition does not depend on the chosen regular value and coincides for homotopic maps.

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.
As an application of the jet version, I deduced that the set of Morse functions on a smooth manifold topoloogy an open and dense subset with respect to the strong topology. I plan to cover the following topics: Some are routine explorations of the main material. Pollack, Differential TopologyPrentice Hall As a consequence, any vector bundle over a contractible space is trivial.
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. The proof of this relies on the fact that the identity map of the sphere is not homotopic plolack a constant map.
The book differntial a differentila of exercises of various types. Readership Undergraduate and graduate students interested in differential topology.
I proved homotopy invariance of pull backs. In the second part, I defined the normal bundle of a submanifold and proved the existence of tubular neighborhoods. I defined the intersection number of a map and a manifold and the intersection number of two submanifolds.
I also proved the parametric version of TT and the jet version. I presented three equivalent ways to think about these concepts: I continued to discuss the degree of a map between compact, oriented manifolds of equal dimension.
