5.3. FROBENIUS THEOREM 123 Thus, span { v i } = Δ . 7. We have d α μ = μ<ν C μλν α λ α ν + i A μλ i β i α ν + i < j B μ i j β i β j = ν γ μν α ν + i < j B μ i j β i β j . 8. Thus, B μ i j = ( d α μ )( v i , v j ) = 0 . 9. (3) = (4). Suppose that d α μ ω = 0. 10. Then we have 0 = d α μ ω = ν γ μν α ν ω + i < j B μ i j β i β j ω . = i < j B μ i j β i β j α 1 ∧ · · · ∧ α n - k . 11. Thus, B μ i j = 0. Remarks. A k -dimensional distribution Δ can be described locally by either k linearly independent vector fields that span Δ or by ( n - k ) linearly independent 1-forms whose common null space is Δ . If d α μ = n - k ν = 1 γ μν α ν for some 1-forms γ μν , then we write d α μ = 0 (mod α ) . 5.3.2 Frobenius Theorem Definition 5.3.4 Let M be an n-dimensional manifold, W be a k- dimensional manifold and F : W M be a smooth map. Then F is an immersion if for each x W the di ff erential F * : T x W T F ( x ) M is injective, that is, Ker F * = 0 . The image F ( W ) of the manifold W is called an immersed submani- fold . di ff geom.tex; April 12, 2006; 17:59; p. 123

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
