topics in manifold theory

A manifoldMathworldPlanetmath is a space that is locally like n, however lacking a preferred system of coordinates. Furthermore, a manifold can have global topological properties, such as non-contractible loops (, that distinguish it from the topologically trivial n.

By imposing different restrictions on the transition functions of a manifold, one obtain different types of manifolds:
