guillmin Some are routine explorations of the main material. 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. There is a midterm examination and a final examination. The book has a wealth of exercises of various types. I proved that this definition does not depend on the chosen regular value and coincides for homotopic maps. 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. Differential Topology provides an eifferential and intuitive introduction to the study of smooth manifolds.

This allows to extend the degree to all continuous maps. A final mark above 5 is needed in order to pass the course. I defined the linking number and the Hopf map and described some applications.

I stated the problem of understanding which vector bundles admit nowhere vanishing sections. 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. It is a jewel of mathematical exposition, judiciously picking exactly the right mixture of detail and generality to display the richness within. Then I defined the compact-open and strong topology on the set of continuous functions between topological spaces.


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 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 guillenin. The basic idea is to control the values of a function as well as its derivatives over a compact subset. Browse the current eBook Collections price list.

Subsets of manifolds that are of measure zero were introduced. topologh

The rules for passing the course: The proof relies on the approximation results and an extension result for the strong topology. The book is suitable for either an introductory graduate course or an advanced undergraduate course. 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.

This reduces to proving that any two vector bundles which are concordant i. Email, fax, or send via postal mail to: The standard notions that are taught in the first course on Differential Geometry e. 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.

At the beginning I gave a short motivation for differential topology. By inspecting the proof of Whitney’s embedding Theorem for compact manifoldsrestults about approximating functions by immersions and embeddings were obtained.


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.

Concerning embeddings, one first ueses the local result to find a neighborhood Y of a given embedding f in the strong differentiaal, such that any map contained in this neighborhood is an embedding when restricted to the memebers of some open cover. Pollack, Differential TopologyPrentice Hall I also proved the parametric version of TT and the jet version. For AMS eBook frontlist subscriptions or backfile collection purchases: I presented three equivalent ways to think about these concepts: I defined the intersection number of a map and a manifold and the intersection number of two submanifolds.

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.

Then basic notions concerning manifolds were reviewed, such as:
