Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Robert König
Übungsleitung: Andreas Bluhm

This course will provide an introduction to basic concepts of differential topology. We will discuss immersions, submersions and embeddings, critical points and Sard's theorem, Whitney's embedding theorem, as well as some mapping degree theory. Applications include fixed point theorems and the Borsuk-Ulam theorem. By the end of this course, students should be able to analyse topological problems from a differentiable viewpoint and to see differential problems from a topological perspective.
