Differentiable Manifolds

  • Dale Husemoller
Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics book series (GTM, volume 20)


Fibre bundles first arose as bundles associated with the geometry of a manifold. In this chapter we consider topics in the topology of manifolds connected with vector bundles and the orientability of manifolds. Using Stiefel-Whitney classes we derive elementary nonexistence theorems for immersions of manifolds into euclidean space.
