FRIDAY Feb. 16 : Topology Seminar
Title: Smale-Hirsch Theorem
Jacob Pichelmeyer
Kansas State University

Abstract: My initial intention, since it is a talk based on material that would be presented to graduate students in Math 996, is to make it very graduate student-friendly by providing many definitions and exposition so that an average graduate student can easily follow from the beginning of the talk to the end. I would start by discussing the Compression theorem, including what is a normal (vs perpendicular normal) vector field, before giving definitions of immersion and formal immersion (with some examples), and then ending with the Smale-Hirsch theorem and its proof.
