The canonical family of Thom forms s for 0 < s < 1 constructed by Harvey and Lawson on an oriented real vector bundle V ! X with metric connection D V is shown to have a smooth current extension to the bundle of real projective spaces, P(R V) ! X, which compactiies V in the bre directions. The current limit as r ! 1 and s ! 0 of the smooth transgression… CONTINUE READING
