Global Stability of Distributions of Higher Corank of Derived Length One

  title={Global Stability of Distributions of Higher Corank of Derived Length One},
  author={Jiro Adachi},
Studying a manifold with a certain geometric structure becomes an interesting topic in differential topology when such a structure has some stability. The local stability of symplectic and contact structures, the Darboux theorem, is a fundamental property for symplectic and contact topology. There is a well-known global stability theorem for contact structures, the Gray theorem (see [3]): a one-parameter deformation of a contact structure on a compact orientable manifold can be pursued by using… CONTINUE READING
