An ndimensional topological manifold is a topological space that is Haus dorff, has a countable basis at every point, and is locally Euclidean . That is, every point has a neighbourhood which is homeomorphic to an open set of R n . An ndimensional differentiable manifold M is an ndimensional topolog ical manifold with a differentiable structure . That is, there is a collection of coordinate charts f = { ( U i , i ) } which cover M such that i) x M, U x f s.t. x U x and U x = V R n ii) For any two charts ( U, ) and ( V, ), U V 6 = =  1 and  1 are diffeomorphisms of ( U V ) and ( U V ) in R n . iii) U is maximal in the sense that any chart ( U, ) which compatible with f in the sense of (ii) is included in f . b) Describe all 1dimensional manifolds. If a 1dimensional manifold is compact, it is homeomorphic to S 1 . If a 1 dimensional manifold is not compact, it is homeomorphic to R 1 . Anything not falling into either category can readily be shown to be (i) not 1dimensional, or (ii) not a topological manifold. c) Describe all closed orientable and nonorientable 2dimensional manifolds. If a 2dimensional closed manifold is orientable, then it is a sphere, a torus, or a connected sum of tori. That is, it is an ngenus torus (with a sphere corresponding to genus 0). If a 2dimensional closed manifold is nonorientable, then it is a Klein bottle, projective plane, or connected sum of them. d) What are the fundamental groups of the manifolds in (b) and (c)? 1 ( S 1 ) = Z and S 1 has universal covering space R 1 . 1 ( R 1 ) = { 1 } and R 1 is its own universal covering space. 1 ( S 2 ) = { 1 } and S 2 has universal covering space R 2 . 1 ( T 2 ) = Z Z and T 2 has universal covering space R 2 . 1 (# g i =1 T 2 ) = Z 2 g and # g i =1 T 2 has universal covering space R 2 . 1 ( K ) = F ( a,b ) { aba 1 b } and K has universal covering space R 2 . 1 ( R P 2 ) = Z 2 and R P 2 has universal covering space S 2 . 2 Math 205C  Topology Midterm Erin Pearse 2. Explain why each of the following figures either is or is not a topological manifold. a) This object is clearly 1dimensional. Take x to be an inter section point with open nbd U as shown. Assuming this space has the natural (subspace) topology, U would have to be homeomorphic to an open set V R 1 . Since U{ x } consists of three connected components, and for V{ f ( x ) } con sists of only two, f : U V cannot be a homeomorphism. This is explained in a little better detail in (v), below. b) By the same argument as above, any open nbd of the in tersection point x cannot be homemorphic to an open set of R 1 . c) Though not a differentiable manifold, this space is clearly homeomorphic to ( a,b ) R 1 and is thus a 1dimensional topological manifold.and is thus a 1dimensional topological manifold....
