My hang up is that I need the following to hold for these local parametrizations: The explanations are often difficult to follow and cluttered, requiring one to dedicate a large amount of time to draw diagrams and try and follow the train of thought of the author.

I’ve spent longer than I’d like to admit on this, and every set of lecture notes I turn to seems to exclude this demonstration which I sympathize with. Readership Undergraduate and graduate students interested in differential topology.

Secondly, the book is full of errors, omitted assumptions and flaky proofs. 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.

Differential Topology

Some of the comments have suggested using algebraic topology. I can understand why the question was posted here. Email, fax, or send via postal mail to: In the years since its first publication, Guillemin and Pollack’s book has become a standard text on the subject.

Now, for the first time in many years as a costumer, I’ll try to return this book to Amazon. My single star refers not to the text itself, but to the quality of this guillemjn and to the value of the purchase.

I have wasted large amounts of time trying to find pollaack particular definition required for a simple problem because the definition was hidden in a paragraph of useless gibberish.

Some are routine explorations of the main material. Over all, I find it rather hard to learn from Complete and sign the license agreement. It’s just not “text book” material.

Mathematics Stack Exchange works best with JavaScript enabled. So no such diffeomorphism could exist. It is a jewel of mathematical exposition, judiciously picking exactly the right mixture of detail and generality to display the richness within. Of course, if you are allowed to use algebraic topology, you can actually prove that the two neighborhoods are not even homeomorphic.

The strength of the subject is that the spaces in question have a guillein that allow many problems to be locally reduced to linear algebra questions.
