The Todd genus

Abstract

In this chapter M n will be compact, differentiable of class C and, in addition, almost complex. The tangent GL(n, C)-bundle of Mn (see 4.6) is denoted by Θ(Mn). We investigate the “genus” associated with the m-sequence {T i (c1…, c i )} of 1.7 as well as the “generalised genus” associated with the m-sequence {T i (y;c1,…, c i )} of 1.8.
