Let X, Y be ndimensional manifolds, and let f : X → Y be a C ∞ map with f ( p ) = p 1 . Theorem 6.39. If df p : T p X → T p 1 Y is bijective, then f maps a neighborhood V of p diffeomorphically onto a neighborhood V 1 of p 1 . Sketch of proof: Let φ : U → V be a parameterization of X at p , with φ ( q ) = p . Similarly, let φ 1 : U 1 → V 1 be a parameterization of Y at p 1 , with φ 1 ( q 1 ) = p 1 . Show that we can assume that f : V → V 1 (Hint: if not, replace V by V ∩ f − 1 ( V 1 )). Show that we have a diagram ⏐ ⏐ f V V 1 −−−→ ⏐ ⏐ (6.114) φ φ 1 g −−−→ U U 1 , which defines g , g = φ − 1 1 ◦ f ◦ φ, (6.115) g ( q ) = q 1 . (6.116) So, ( dg ) q = ( dφ 1 ) − 1 q 1 ◦ df p ◦ ( dφ ) q . (6.117) Note that all three of the linear maps on the r.h.s. are bijective, so ( dg ) q is a bijection. Use the Inverse Function Theorem for open sets in R n . This ends our explanation of the first homework problem. Last time we showed the following. Let X, Y be ndimensional manifolds, and let f : X → Y be a proper C ∞ map. We can define a topological invariant deg( f ) such that for every ω ∈ Ω n c ( Y ), f ∗ ω = deg(...
