A final mark above 5 is needed in order to pass the course.
The standard notions that are taught in the first course on Differential Geometry e. 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.
The book has a wealth of exercises of various types. At the beginning I gave a short motivation for differential topology. I continued to discuss the degree of a map between compact, oriented manifolds of equal dimension. Subsets of manifolds that are of measure zero were introduced. The proof relies on the approximation results and an extension result for the strong topology.

Then I defined the compact-open and strong topology on the set of continuous functions between topological spaces. I also proved the parametric version of TT and the jet version. In the end I differengial a preliminary version of Whitney’s embedding Theorem, i. The course provides differentizl introduction to differential topology.
It asserts that the set of all singular values of any smooth manifold is a subset of measure zero. This allows to extend the degree to all continuous maps.
This reduces to proving that any two vector bundles which are concordant i. As a consequence, any vector bundle over a contractible space is trivial. A formula for the norm of the r’th differential of a composition of two functions was established in the proof. The rules for passing the course: I defined the intersection number of a map and a manifold and the intersection number of differenyial submanifolds.
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 topooogy whole manifold if and only if the degree is zero.
As an application of the jet pollaack, I deduced that the set of Morse functions pollac a smooth manifold forms an open and dense subset with respect to the strong topology. I proved homotopy invariance of pull backs.
This, in turn, was proven by globalizing the corresponding denseness result for maps from a closed ball to Euclidean space. 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.
For AMS eBook frontlist subscriptions or backfile collection purchases: 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 outlined a proof of giullemin fact. The proof consists of an inductive procedure and a relative version of an apprixmation result for maps between open subsets of Euclidean spaces, which tuillemin proved with the help of convolution kernels.
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. Pollack, Differential TopologyPrentice Hall An exercise section hopology Chapter 4 leads the student through a construction of de Rham cohomology and a proof of its homotopy invariance. In the years since its first publication, Guillemin and Pollack’s book has become a standard text on the subject.
There is a midterm examination and a final examination. The proof of this relies yuillemin the fact that the identity map topollogy the sphere is not homotopic to a constant map. 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 of some open cover.
In the second part, I defined the normal bundle of a submanifold and proved the existence of tubular neighborhoods.

By inspecting the proof of Whitney’s embedding Theorem for compact manifoldsrestults differdntial approximating functions by immersions and embeddings were obtained. 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. Differential Topology provides an elementary and intuitive introduction to the study of smooth manifolds.
I proved that any vector bundle whose rank is strictly larger than the dimension of the manifold admits such a section. Then basic notions concerning manifolds were reviewed, such as:
