The Euler number was defined as the intersection number of the zero section of topoology oriented vector bundle with itself. The rules for passing the course: I also proved the parametric version of TT and the jet version. I stated the problem of understanding which vector bundles admit nowhere vanishing sections.
I defined the intersection number of a map and a manifold and the intersection number polladk two submanifolds. I first discussed orientability and orientations of manifolds.

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.
There is a midterm examination and a final examination. In others, the students are guided step-by-step through proofs of fundamental results, differentia, as the Jordan-Brouwer separation theorem.
It is a jewel of mathematical exposition, judiciously picking exactly the right mixture of detail and generality to display the richness within. The projected date for the final examination is Wednesday, January23rd. Readership Undergraduate and graduate students interested in differential topology. 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. A formula for the norm of the r’th differential of a composition of two functions was established in the proof.
I outlined a proof of the fact. This, in turn, was proven by globalizing the corresponding denseness result for maps from a closed ball to Euclidean pollaci.
In the years since its first publication, Guillemin and Pollack’s book has become a standard text on the subject. As a consequence, any vector bundle over a contractible space is trivial. An exercise section in Chapter 4 leads the student through a construction of de Rham cohomology and a proof of its homotopy invariance.
The basic idea is to control the values of a function as well as its derivatives over a compact subset. I defined the linking number and the Hopf map and described some applications.
Then I defined the compact-open and strong topology on the set of continuous functions between topological spaces. Then a version of Sard’s Theorem was proved. The proof of this relies on the fact that the identity map of the sphere is not homotopic to a constant map.
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 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. The book is suitable for either an introductory graduate course or an advanced undergraduate course.
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. At the beginning I gave a short motivation for differential topology.

I presented three equivalent ways to think about these concepts: I proved that any vector bundle whose rank is strictly larger than the dimension of the manifold admits such a section. By inspecting the proof of Whitney’s embedding Theorem for compact manifoldsrestults about approximating functions by immersions and embeddings were obtained. Then I revisted Whitney’s embedding Theoremand extended it to non-compact manifolds. Moreover, I showed that if the rank equals the dimension, there is always a section that vanishes at exactly one point.
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. 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. 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.
I proved homotopy invariance of pull backs.
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 guillemih the only obstruction to the existence of nowhere vanishing sections. Some are routine explorations of the main material. 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 continued to discuss the degree of a map between compact, oriented manifolds of equal dimension. Differential Topology provides an elementary and intuitive introduction to the study of smooth manifolds.
The book has a wealth of exercises of various types. Various transversality statements where proven with diffreential help of Sard’s Theorem and the Globalization Theorem both established in the previous class.
This reduces to proving that any two vector bundles which are concordant i. 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.
It is the topology whose basis differengial 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.
