We give a definition of ‘coherent tangent bundles’, which is an intrinsic formulation of wave fronts. In our application of coherent tangent bundles for wave fronts, the first fundamental forms and the third fundamental forms are considered as induced metrics of certain homomorphisms between vector bundles. They satisfy the completely same conditions, and so can reverse roles with each other. For a given wave front of a 2-manifold, there are two Gauss–Bonnet formulas. By exchanging the roles of…

In this paper, we give a definition of coherent tangent bundles of space form type, which is a generalized notion of space forms. Then, we classify their realizations in the sphere as a wave front,

We define cuspidal curvature $\kappa_c$ along cuspidal edges in Riemannian $3$-manifolds, and show that it gives a coefficient of the divergent term of the mean curvature function. Moreover, we show

Complete flat fronts as hypersurfaces in Euclidean space
By Hartman--Nirenberg's theorem, any complete flat hypersurface in Euclidean space must be a cylinder over a plane curve. However, if we admit some singularities, there are many non-trivial examples.
