If all partial derivatives of f exist up to any order we say that f is C or smooth . A collection { ( U i , i ) } i I is called an atlas of a manifold M , if U i cover M and : U i R n are homeomorphisms. We say that this atlas is C r if for every i , j I , i 1 j : j ( U i U j ) i ( U i U j ) is C r . We say that M is a C r manifold if it admits a C r atlas. Exercise 1. Show that S n is a smooth ( C ) manifold. Exercise 2. Show that RP n is a smooth manifold ( Hint : Define RP n as the quotient space ( R n +1 { o } ) / , where x y iff x = y for some 6 = 0....
