This paintings matters the diffeomorphism teams of 3-manifolds, specifically of elliptic 3-manifolds. those are the closed 3-manifolds that admit a Riemannian metric of continuous optimistic curvature, referred to now to be precisely the closed 3-manifolds that experience a finite primary team. The (Generalized) Smale Conjecture asserts that for any elliptic 3-manifold M, the inclusion from the isometry workforce of M to its diffeomorphism staff is a homotopy equivalence. the unique Smale Conjecture, for the 3-sphere, used to be confirmed through J. Cerf and A. Hatcher, and N. Ivanov proved the generalized conjecture for plenty of of the elliptic 3-manifolds that include a geometrically incompressible Klein bottle.

The major effects identify the Smale Conjecture for all elliptic 3-manifolds containing geometrically incompressible Klein bottles, and for all lens areas L(m,q) with m at the very least three. extra effects indicate that for a Haken Seifert-fibered three manifold V, the distance of Seifert fiberings has contractible parts, and except a small record of identified exceptions, is contractible. substantial foundational and historical past

At points of @M , the component of each vector in the direction perpendicular to @M is 0, so since E is linear, the extended component is also 0 and therefore the extended vector field is also tangent to the boundary.

An orbifold omorphism of O, diffeomorphism of O is an orbifold homeomorphism for which some and hence e are diffeomorphisms.
