Pure Maths Colloquium: Approximating smooth maps
Presented by "Colin Rourke (University of Warwick, Coventry)",
22 October 2001 00:00 in CM221
" How nice can a smooth map f: M-->Q be made by a small homotopy? If we mean C^\infty
small, then there is a whole theory of Thom-Boardman singularities. But if we mean C^0
small then there is a great simplification and in many cases the map can be desingularised
completely. In fact the problem reduces to finding a suitable stable normal bundle."
